Tour Spotlight

From Philip Brown, NRCS State Grazing Specialist:
"Bale grazing is an alternative hay feeding technique of setting bales on pasture in bulk quantities, uniformly distributed within the field, and feeding in a planned, controlled, and sequential manner utilizing temporary electric fencing. Allocations are usually made on 30-day to 45-day intervals but have extended up to 120 days. Bale grazing has the potential to minimize soil damage associated with hay feeding, helps distribute nutrients and organic matter, and reduces time and equipment operation associated with hay feeding, other topics that will be covered briefly will be toxic tall fescue conversion and incorporating agroforestry into grazing systems."
