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.
