“Stockpiling” and “rotational grazing” are the two main management practices that graziers use. “Stockpiling” is basically letting the grass grow, while “rotational grazing” is how we allow cows access to the grass. By limiting the access to the grass, they eat what’s in front of them without walking all over the farm trying to get the good stuff before their friends get it.
Rotational grazing presents a few problem, though. Getting the cows shade in the summer and shelter from the wind in the winter are important, and it can be tricky making sure all those pieces fit together.
