    This is a nice, concise explanation by Ben Bartlett of what holistically planned grazing is and it is a good follow up to Troy Bishop’s articles about winter stockpile grazing where he uses Holistic Management grazing charts. Thanks for making the loop with theory and practice. As Ben says, it is a “learned technique” and your coverage helps us in that learning. Thanks again.
