The new grazing charts are here!

This is what I feel like yelling every year about this time in a grazing version of Steve Martin in the Jerk.

I don’t know about you, but in my daily life, I’m not a very detailed planner, and sometimes that means things go a little haywire. That’s why I appreciate these grazing charts from Troy Bishopp. They help us sit down and think about what we want to do, what could go wrong along the way, and then what we can do to get over any hurdles. Troy’s grazing charts have helped him through drought, too much rain, and, when he had a heart attack, helped his family keep the cows grazing and moving.

When you sit down with your grazing chart you can say, “Things are going to start happening now!” Like Tom Krawiec, who shares his experience this week, your grazing chart just might be the tool that helps you double your carrying capacity.

If this is your first year trying out a grazing chart, you might wonder what to do with it. Not to worry! We’ve got a whole Special Collection of articles by Troy to help with that. And please do share your questions with us so we can help you along the way.
