Determining Pasture Condition
Author(s) Dennis Cosgrove, Dan Undersander, Maurice Davis
Good pasture condition is critical to a successful grazing system. Pasture quality may vary greatly from paddock to paddock, or year to year, due to differences in management, environment, fertility, grazing pressure or animal species. The intent of this publication is to provide graziers with a method of evaluating pasture condition and help determine if paddocks are in need of improvement. It is also a useful tool in evaluating the impact of management decisions on pastures (4 pages).
