Grazing ManagementBrowse Index
Grazing management is the planning, implementation and monitoring of animal grazing to achieve sustained animal, plant, land, environmental and economic results under a range of environmental conditions.
Grazing management practices seek to optimize livestock production and maintain productive grasslands by minimizing overgrazing, improving forage production and increasing plant and animal diversity. Grazing, when well-managed, allows healthy grasslands to be sustained, livestock operations to meet economic requirements and other plants and animals to flourish. Well-managed grazing techniques can reverse damage and help to restore grassland health.
