Grazing is a management tool that uses livestock and their act of consuming plant material to impact an ecosystem or landscape. Grazing affects both the plant and the animal. Plant type and availability, stage of growth, animal preferences, livestock age and physiological condition, stock density, duration of grazing and recovery, and management all play roles in the responses of both plants and animals to grazing. At this workshop, you will learn about these interactions, terminology and concepts, and plant and animal responses to grazing. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit grazing paddocks at the Noble Research Institute and discuss the effects of grazing and applied grazing management with consultants in the field.
