Our cattle spend the summer and fall on our pastures where we move them daily so that they graze in a manner similar to a herd of Buffalo. They graze an area intensely fertilizing it with their dung and then moving on to a fresh piece and coming back after the plants have had a chance to fully recover from the first grazing. They have access to fresh water, salt, mineral and kelp while on pasture. We have also been practicing Holistic Management planned rotational grazing to achieve more “herd effect” on our pastures and have increased the recovery time for the plants. This means giving the cattle a very small area for a few hours before moving them into the next piece.
