Grazing Methods

Agriculture

TermDefinition
Continuous Grazing Definition In the continuous grazing system the pasture is not divided into sub-pastures or paddocks. Livestock are allowed access to all the pasture area at any given time.
Rotational Grazing Definition Rotational grazing can mean many things but generally means dividing the pasture into sub-pastures typically called paddocks
Continuous Grazing Benefits This system involves a very low level of labor and management. It also requires very little expense in fencing materials other than the exterior fence.
Rotational Grazing Benefits t it will allow the pasture plants a rest period to regrow before being grazed again, more total pounds of dry matter produced in a season compared to continuous grazing; and a more stable pasture botanical composition.
Continuous Grazing Disadvantages disadvantages. They are as follows: uneven grazing patterns; variable plane of nutrition (animals eat the best forage first then move to lower quality); uneven distribution of manure and resulting ‘nutrient creep’ toward water and shade;
Rotational Grazing Disadvantages Disadvantages for rotational grazing are: takes more labor than continuous grazing to set up paddocks; more expense involved due to temporary fencing materials and necessary infrastructure to provide water in all paddocks.
