Writing a grazing plan includes developing a schedule and allocating forage to animals based on animal feed demand. Multi-paddock rotational grazing uses paddock size and number to stock pastures appropriately, based on animal intake, plant recovery, and the length of the grazing period. These tips are designed to help graziers easily make use of the ATTRA Grazier's Calculator to match forage resources to animal demand, including determining forage productivity and calculating paddocks size and number.
