Grazing Management for Sustainable Ranching

PDF

Publication #: MP-111.14
Date Published: 11/01/2012

Publication Author(s):
Michael A. Smith

Description:
Effective grazing management based on monitored resource and animal stocking rate objectives has been accomplished through implementation of combinations of several recognized tools for controlling the location, timing, time, and intensity of use on rangelands. These tools have included attractants like protein molasses blocks and low-stress handling techniques for herding, in addition to more conventional water developments and fencing. Successful operations have used pasture use strategies ranging from one area with the combination of distribution tools to many small paddocks managed with short grazing and long recovery periods. There is no universal prescription for effective grazing management. In general, the desired outcomes increase with the additional management skill, effectiveness, and inputs.
