Growing Farms: Introduction to Pasture and Grazing Management

Introduction to Pasture and Grazing Management is for any livestock producer seeking to improve their pasture management and create a more productive and sustainable forage-livestock system.

Pasture Management Strategies

This course is based on the premise that as a livestock producer, you are actually a grass and legume farmer, using the forages that you grow as a feed source for your animals. From that perspective, the course guides you through a number of topics and key strategies.

Specifically, you will learn:

  • The benefits of good pasture and grazing management.
  • How to assess the condition of your pasture.
  • How grasses grow and how management affects grass growth.
  • The basics of rotational grazing—how to manage grazing to complement the pasture growth cycle.
  • Irrigation, nutrient and weed management strategies.
  • How to renovate your pasture.
  • Managing your pasture through the growing season.
