Our south pasture has finally recovered enough for us to start intensive, rotational grazing across it this fall. After doing much research and visiting other farms using this method with good results I am so excited to be implementing this practice into our pasture management plan. We will be opening a new section of pasture to our cows every 2-3 days so they can have continuous access to fresh grass/legumes. The cows are on the pasture section briefly but densely, they graze closely, stamp depressions in the soil, upturn flora, and defecate. This works to provide the nutrients from manure and carbon (plants stomped into the soil) needed to help the pasture fully recover and provide continuous, healthy soil for established grass/legumes to grow back. I love how clean and content the cows are when moving through fresh, clean pasture.
