ROTATIONAL
GRAZING SYSTEMS
Intensively managed grazing of pastures
can greatly improve the land’s yield and
quality. The basic idea is to concentrate
the animals in a small enough area so
they harvest everything (even the less
tasty growth). Then move them to other
small areas while the previous pasture
replenishes. Organic fertilizer (manure) is
evenly distributed with no effort. Higher
gains come from the pasture because
the plants have time to recover and
animals can be fed better. The need for
expensive machinery and material inputs
are reduced. To do this much animal
moving, fencing must be effective and
easy to use. Step-in posts are the easiest
way to set-up a temporary fence system.
Simply push the pedal with your foot to
insert the pin into the ground.
