Managed Grazing – Part 4 of 5 – Managing Pasture Plants

Iowa State University. Managed grazing involves careful consideration of the growth requirements and characteristics of the pasture plants, the needs of the grazing animals, the economics of the enterprise and the daily decisions necessary to benefit each. This video focuses on the pasture plants: how they grow; their nutritive value; how they respond following grazing; and their role in some of the important grazing management decisions.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
