Successful Pasture Management
Date of Publication:
The aim of being successful as a grazier requires the manager to be successful in the task of growing grass. Growing grass is the engine room in driving the profitability and sustainability of the grazing system.
Once grass can be grown then it is up to the capacity of the manager to maximize the benefit of this resource. It is very important to understand what the ideal requirements of the animal are, how much energy they require and what the pastures can achieve at various stages of growth.
It should always be the objective of the manager to keep the animals above a reasonable condition score in order to maintain the animals’ productivity, their capacity to breed, and their capacity to maximize weight gain and fibre production.
