Late summer and fall are critical times for proper pasture management. Check out this fact sheet and begin to understand plant and root growth in the Fall.
Uneven grazing distribution patterns on rangeland can lead to overuse of forage in some areas and no use or waste of herbage in areas not visited by cattle. Range improvements affecting more even distribution of grazing utilization can increase pasture carrying capacity and allow stocking for extended periods. This article describes several science-based options for improving cattle grazing distribution in extensive rangeland pastures.
