How Can I Implement Rotational Grazing?

Aug 12, 2020

If you’re in a dry, arid part of the country (typically the further west you go), rotational grazing may not be possible or will be limited because there’s not enough rain for grass regrowth throughout the year. As you head east in the U.S., there tends to be more rain and more opportunity for grass regrowth, which is perfect for a rotational grazing system.

After kids consume their colostrum, they can be left with the doe to nurse or started on milk replacer, such as LAND O LAKES® Doe's Match® Kid Milk Replacer.  ​ When bottle feeding, keep kids on a proper feeding schedule and restrict intake, since overfeeding can lead to diarrhea, bloat and even death due to Clostridium perfringens, which thrive on excessive starches and sugars in the digestive tract (this is called “overeating disease” or enterotoxemia).

Ration Balancer for Horses
