How To Bale Graze

The “How To's” of bale grazing are much like those of the growing season. Where you feed, how you feed, what livestock are present, as well as the equipment you use all play a part in the equation. Make sure this equation has a positive outcome. Targeting desirable areas for bale grazing can yield huge returns in soil health. Deciding to feed bales whole or unrolled might hold the key to unlocking minimal nutrient or labor inputs. Using portable fencing that is visible and rugged enough to handle frozen ground conditions makes moving and containing livestock possible even in blustering cold months. Allowing livestock to do as much of the work as possible allows more freedom for the farmer. Learning how to bale graze ensures that winter is not a wasted season.
