ATTRA Grazing Planning Manual and Workbook
A feature in Forbes describes how a Northern California ranch has adapted Vineyard Infrared Growth Optical Recognition to track pasture quality for its cattle. Genesee Valley Ranch uses aerial imaging to provide data on grass growth and water distribution on pasture land that helps managers decide how to adjust the cattle’s grazing schedule. The ranch produces Black Wagyu Beef that is sold through a subscription program.
