Visualization of rotational grazing

This photo shows you where we grazed the cattle.  We use electric fencing to create temporary pastures, let the cattle graze for a few days, then move them to the next area.  The area where they first grazed is already starting to come back!

This type of intensive grazing ensures that the cattle eat down all the grasses, including all the types they don't particularly like.  It also gives the pasture denser manure coverage which gives us stronger fertilization and helps the pastures grow back faster.

We love standing in this spot and looking at the differences in the three pasture areas.
