Planned grazing refers to the process of moving livestock from pasture to pasture at the right time—allowing the animals to fertilize the land, disturb and aerate the soil slightly, and actually trigger plants to come back with stronger growth, but moving them before they trample the land or begin to eat too close to the ground and impede plant growth. When done correctly, grazing in this way can actually increase biodiversity and improve levels of soil organic matter.
Here are some other benefits of planned grazing:
+ Restored Water Systems
+ Land Restoration
+ Healthier Animals & Healthier Food
+ Healthy Soil
+ Increased Biodiversity
+ Increased Farmer Prosperity
