Small Pasture Management for Cattle

This video is about Utah Cattleman Darrell Yardley, who attended an NRCS (National Resource Conservation Service) pasture management school and instituted a rotational grazing system on 23 acres. As he explains, this has produced more forage for his cattle.

In the West, the stocking questions usually are “how many mother cows per acre?” In the drier areas of Texas, the question is usually “how many acres per cow?” These are the wrong questions: Both ignore how much time cattle are left in any place, and how much ‘rest’ or recovery, is allowed between grazings.
