Stockpiled Grass is Your Ranch’s Heavy Hitter

After just over a month of stockpiling, Dave uses his arm to measure the grass in his pasture - 30 inches!
After just over a month of stockpiling, Dave uses his arm to measure the grass in his pasture – 30 inches!

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.

Dave has retired now, but folks at NCAT are still available to answer questions. Here’s the help line number: 800-346-9140.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
