A pasture is much more than grass. It’s a complex ecosystem of living organisms vital to soil, forage and animal health. Pastures often aren’t treated as such, however. They’re overgrazed, over-tilled and overworked, leading to nutrient loss in soil, water runoff, poor forage yields and inadequate weight gain in cattle. Clemson Extension is teaching cattle farmers to reap the many benefits of proper rotational grazing methods.
