Grazing Plan

We use cows, and probably in the future other animals, to improve soil fertility by grazing. The animals eat the gras, trample it and fertilize it by dropping manure and urinating.

Grazing happens in a defined pattern and is time controlled. Depending the size of the paddock animals are moved to the next paddock in less than 24 hours.

It is important to move them when about 60% of each plant being grazed is left in order to allow the plant to regrow quickly.
