The Graziers Tool Box – improving pasture productivity and quality – MOSES Organic Farming Conference

This workshop will discuss how to use the basic “tools” of grass farming to feed our livestock and improve the pastures. Topics will include different stocking rates, stock densities and trampling. We will also talk about how allowing plants more or less time to regrow, the use of shorter or taller pre grazing heights and the amount of residual pasture left behind effects the animals, soils and plants. By better understanding, and using these “graziers tools” we can change the pasture plant species composition, pasture productivity & quality, soil health, and livestock performance.
