Grazing management

Successful grazing businesses make sustained profits by growing and converting pasture, and conserved feed, into livestock products that consistently meet market specifications. 8-Pasture-production-LR.jpg

Sustainable and profitable grazing systems use tactical grazing management to link pasture production with pasture utilisation and livestock production. 

Grazing management plays a pivotal role in this process to ensure:

  1. pasture growth is optimised
  2. pasture composition is maintained in a desirable state
  3. pasture is utilised, not wasted
  4. livestock performance meets established growth pathways 
  5. resources are managed within environmental constraints and guidelines 

More information about different grazing management systems can be found on the EverGraze website and definitions of grazing terms are available.
