Join FACT and grazing expert Sarah Flack for part 3 of a 3-part series on strategies for pasture management. This session will discuss tools and strategies for pasture improvement.
This final session will let us put together what we learned in the first two, and talk about how we can meet livestock needs while also using their grazing behavior to improve the pastures. How can we use higher or lower stocking densities, taller or shorter pre-grazing heights and decisions on how long to leave livestock in the paddock and how much to let them trample it, or how short to let them graze it as tools to improve pastures so we can avoid expensive inputs and reseeding? By better understanding, and using these “graziers tools” we can change the pasture plant species composition, pasture productivity & quality, soil health, and livestock performance.
