Want to make a quick dollar? “Stockpile grass!” says Dave Scott of Montana Highland Lamb and ATTRA’s National Center for Appropriate Technology. It’s half the cost of hay, doesn’t require a tractor or fuel, and frees up a lot of your time. As an added bonus, stockpiling can improve soil health indicators related to nutrient cycling. In this short video in his series, Dave describes how he stockpiles his grass thanks to his use of intensive grazing management, showing you what he has for his sheep going into the winter.
If you have questions, Dave is an outstanding resource. He’s happy to answer questions, share ideas, and talk with you about ways you can use intensive grazing and stockpiling to reduce your workload and increase your profitability. Give him a call or drop him a line!
