Determine your rotation frequency using the simple tool below. If you already know your rotation frequency or are continuous grazing, proceed to Step 2.
*Rotation frequency recommendations are based off of a 25 day rest period for each paddock. This rest period may not be sufficient depending upon your grazing management, species composition, and moisture outlook. Contact us for site specific recommendations.
If you are curious about how many paddocks are ideal based on a rotation frequency (in days), enjoy the tool below. Remember, these are guidelines.
Use the simple tool below to determine grazing information. Start by Entering the # of Head OR the # of Grazing Days.
