Feedback form is now closed.

Roots of forage plants respond when grazed up on the surface of the pasture. And that response varies according whatever that regimen up above happens to be. We’ll take a look at some typical pasture plants grown in specially made boxes that give us access to their root growth below following different grazing treatments.  We’ll talk about the importance of that root response, and what to aim for to keep those pasture plants healthy and in optimum production. We’ll discuss what plants are best for pastures and grazing animals, and what you might think about when setting up your grazing system, and how to keep your pastures in top production.
