An Introduction to Managed Grazing

managed grazing cover

With ever-increasing land and feed costs lamb producers are looking to make the most of their pastures.  Managed grazing helps get the most out of pastures by looking after the forages and improving pasture productivity; by selecting forages that can help extend the grazing season and reduce ‘days on feed’; and by managing pastures to meet the nutritional needs of a flock. This module covers the proper techniques for pasture rotation, paddock management and the pros and cons of each type of forage that is available in Western Canada.This publication has been made possible through joint funding from Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development, and Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency.
