Rotational Grazing

Rotational Grazing employs a systematic grazing structure by subdividing pastures and moving cattle from one paddock to the next. Vegetation in each paddock is given a rest period to recover after grazing.

Short grazing periods with longer rest time allows plants time to survive and recover. Well managed grazing systems prevent compaction and proliferation of undesirable species. Rested forage cycles nutrients more efficiently ensuring nutrient rich feed and grazing efficiency.

The watershed district provides funding programs that include various aspects of establishing a rotational grazing system such as fencing, watering systems, mapping, and more. Call us for a funding assessment for your rotational grazing project.
