December 2019

For the next couple of months our steers will be “taking a break” from their routine of daily moves to fresh pastures and instead will be “mob bale grazing” in our woods. They’ll receive rolls of quality hay every few days and, in turn, will be laying down fresh manure, urine and wasted hay to help build soil fertility and organic matter in a part of our woods that we are developing for silvo-pasture. This will also give our regular pastures a chance to enjoy some deserved sabbath rest and recovery to be ready for another round of intensively managed rotational and adaptive grazing later this spring.
