Introduction

A monitoring plan is an essential part of a grazing plan, and is a feedback mechanism that will provide you with information on what's going on in your pastures, both from climate and ecological factors as well as management decisions. A good monitoring system will alert you to failure before it is too late and will record successful grazing strategies.

Adapted from the Monitoring lesson by Dave Scott, in ATTRA's Managed Grazing Tutorial. For a full monitoring discussion, see the tutorial at https://tutorials.ncat.org.
