    The photo of grazing cattle in a story on forage fertilization runs the risk of conflating pasture with hay. Since hay is removed to feed elsewhere, large amounts of nutrients need to be replaced. The same is NOT true for grazed pasture where the forage is consumed in place and the cattle recycle most of the nutrients in the plants.
