Tips for Extending Your Grazing Season

Stockpiling – or saving feed for later use – is a great way to extend your grazing season and a topic we’ve covered a lot here at On Pasture. This week I’ve pulled a few of those articles to get you started.

This first article includes links to the Grass Whisperer’s Winter Stockpile Grazing series to show you how you can use your stockpile. It also includes information on how and what to stockpile and which pastures work best. You’ll find some great advice from Greg Judy as well.

In this second article, Jim Gerrish reminds us of another benefit of stockpiling: improving pastures for the next year.

Stockpiling is Good For Encouraging Legumes in Your Pastures

Finally, you don’t have to work with just your own forages. Your neighbors might provide you some good options as well.

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.
