Back in October of 2012 I began a project of using low stress stockmanship to herd 460 cows through a 32000 acre grazing plan.
During the course of this grazing season, I did a few experiments to see how much ( if any) increase in forage I could get in areas where cattle normally don’t graze.
One area was four miles from the water source for the 280 head I placed for one day. I placed approximately 180 head to graze up a draw to the top of a long ridge, and let them keep going back on their own.
There was another area which was sub-soiled with the Yeoman Plow just before it was grazed. All of these areas (and more) improved, some with dramatic results. You can see it for yourself in this video!
