Rotational Grazing

Rotational grazing systems are key to increase production, improve the pasture quality and extend the grazing season. A rotational grazing system consists of a number of equal size paddocks, where animals are moved around every 1-5 days. 

Pasture management offers immediate opportunities to increase profits and reduce your environmental footprint within your business, some ways of doing this include...

  • Reducing inputs of supplement feed, fertiliser and  fuel
  • Increasing the pasture utilised, in turn growing more grass and sequestering more carbon
  • Increasing the grazing season, reducing the expensive housing period on farm
