Advanced Grazing Series. Session 3: Plants and Grazing Management

In this video, the third session of NCAT’s “Advanced Grazing Series,” NCAT Agriculture Specialists Lee Rinehart and Justin Morris focus on livestock with a discussion about the effects of animal impact in jump-starting ecological succession; the effect of trampling on soil compaction; the influence of paddock shape and livestock movement on forage intake and the effect of trampling; and how to determine livestock’s nutritional status from observing their behavior and other signs.

The four-part series focuses on advanced concepts in taking regenerative grazing to the next level.

This webinar is produced by the National Center for Appropriate Technology through the ATTRA Sustainable Agriculture program, under a cooperative agreement with USDA Rural Development. ATTRA.NCAT.ORG.
