I typically run my grazing charts from April of one year through March of the next year.  That means there’s no time like the present for you to download your 2014 grazing charts and get going.  Pick the one you think will work the best for you, or download them all and then make up your mind.  Once you have the one you want, take it to your local copy/print shop on a jump drive and ask them to print out a larger version for you.  It’s generally 32″ x 24″, depending on how small you can read (and write) or how small you want to.  The printing generally doesn’t cost too much, and is well worth it.

Choose Your Chart

Click on the chart you’d like. It will appear in a separate window.  Then click “Save As” in your menu (or right click to bring up the options) to save it to your computer.  Download as many as you like.  They’re free!

KeepArticlesComingJoinI just want to put in a plug for Rachel and Kathy, the ladies who have made On Pasture possible for us all since March 21, 2013.  In spite of a serious illness, a broken cheek bone, not to mention no paycheck, they’ve been working away bringing you great information every week.  Did I mention NO PAYCHECK?  Rachel and Kathy and authors on the On Pasture team have done this without taking a dime, though that’s not the long-term plan.  We think that if we provide you with great material, you’ll respond by supporting us.  So throw us a bone, won’t you? Think about what a subscription might cost for something of this quality.  Then  join the On Pasture Community at the level that works for you and keep On Pasture coming every week.  Thanks!

    Hi. This question came in from a reader. If you have an answer, could you please post it? Thank you!

    “Some of the producers I work with are interested in a good, easy to use method of keeping grazing records. Simple but useful is the key. Ideally, the data could be entered into an app and transferred to an excel spreadsheet.

    Do you know if something like this exists?”
