Conservation Grazing

… and now for something completely different

We do spend a lot of time on our holding setting up electric fences and moving animals from one enclosure to another. This micro-management system of grazing is aimed at optimising both the animals’ nutrition and the healthy growth of the grass and other pasture plants without the need for costly inputs of fertilisers or weedkillers. Sometimes DH and I seem to spend all our spare time playing with fence wire. But not always.

This week the cattle went on holiday.
