How Paddock Design Impacts Grazing

By Colin Feilen

We hosted Jim Gerrish from American GrazingLands again today on a very popular webinar, Paddock Design 101: Planned Grazing Fundamentals in collaboration with our Canadian friends, Foothills Forage & Grazing Association. In it, Jim covered the following: 

  • Pasture sub-division: the “why” and “how” 
  • Time management: why it takes precedence over space management 
  • Stock water development: cost-effective considerations when using natural or developed water sources, and its impact to optimizing grazing distribution 
  • Determining size and number of pastures needed for planning rotations based on annual precipitation 
  • Differences in fixed cell and flexible cell design 

I followed up Jim’s comprehensive presentation with an overview of our MaiaGrazing platform, where I demonstrated the numerous benefits of our record keeping function that makes easy work out of flexible grazing cells. Alternatively if you’re new to MaiaGrazingwe can set you up with a free consultation where you can decide if we are the right fit for you. 

During the webinar, we received dozens of audience questions and Jim was able to answer up to five questions live. You’ll be able to see what other graziers are concerned about if you continue to tune in until the end of the webinar: 

If you’re interested in what Jim has to say, why not check out a previous webinar that we hosted? Read our blogManaging Early Spring Grazing, to access a replay of Jim’s seasonal webinar.
