The Art & Science of Grazing: How Grass Farmers Can Create Sustainable Systems
The Art & Science of Grazing allows farmers to gain a solid understanding of key principles of grazing management so they can both design and manage successful grazing systems. The book’s unique approach presents information first from the perspective of pasture plants, and then from the livestock perspective ? helping farmers understand both plant and animal needs before setting up a grazing system. The book discusses all the practical details that are critical for sustained success: how to set up a new system or improve existing systems; acreage calculations; paddock layout; fence and drinking water access; lanes and other grazing infrastructure; managing livestock movement and flow; soil fertility; seeding and reseeding pastures; and more. The author includes descriptions of real grazing systems working well on dairy, beef, goat, and sheep farms in different regions of North America.
