Market demand is rapidly increasing for sustainably-raised beef and dairy products. Pasture or grass-based livestock production is inherently sustainable as this production system relies on biodiversity and ecological complexity to maintain production without the use of costly inputs. Cattle producers are beginning to recognize that intensively-managed rotational grazing (also called management-intensive grazing or planned grazing) can lower production costs, reduce animal stress, and boost the animal’s immune system. This new 2007 publication highlights these and other practices producers are using to provide customers with nutritious food from sustainable farms and ranches.
