For every grazing manager there are times when making decisions about what to do with your stock and pastures are hard. We run into days when the weather has impacted grass growth, and we have to balance the needs of our livestock with the needs of the forage in the pasture. Or maybe we’re in a place where we know we should change, but it seems like such a difficult first step to take when compared to doing things like we always have.

For those days, here’s a flow chart Meg Grzeskiewicz made. It shows you what the future looks like when plants get insufficient rest, and what it looks like when they have time to fully recover. It might inspire you to get going on your grazing plans (free charts here!) You can look at the two sides below.

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.
