Creating Excellent Pasture from the Soil Up

Jim Gerrish - MaiaGrazing Scholars Webinar

Jim Gerrish – American GrazingLands Services
Excellent pasture is high in energy, adequate in protein, mineral rich, diverse, palatable, and durable. The foundation for creating excellent pasture is living, biologically active soil. Current research and producer experience is showing there is a much closer link between living plants and the soil biome than we ever knew of even just 20 years ago. Active photosynthesis drives not only plant growth but also the thriving microbiology below ground. Our daily grazing management choices are what determine how effectively we use the natural linkages between soil, plants, and animals. Understanding and effectively managing the soil-plant-animal interface is a key component of ranch profitability.

Data Dive: A look at the Return on Investment from smarter grazing using water & wire

Bart Davidson - maiagrazing scholars webinar

Bart Davidson – MaiaGrazing Agronomist

There really are only three ways to improve grazing production numbers, and that is by changing forage quantity, quality or utilization.

Everything else is noise or related to these three. Too often we get drawn into conversations about buying more land, re-sowing improved forages or fertilizing … before we take a good hard look at doing better with what we already have, and at a fraction the cost.

Bart will run through some simple data showing the return on investment from improving grazing practices that increase existing forage yield by as much as 100% without needing to talk to your bank manager.
