Record Keeping for Forage and Grassland Management

Speakers: Ryan Boyd, South Glanton Farms, Jeremy Brown, Ducks Unlimited Canada, and Steve Kenyon, Greener Pastures Ranching Ltd.

Pasture and stored forages are critical resources in the cattle industry. An effective management plan requires realistic production goals, a clear understanding of forage production, effective grazing strategies and timely responses to forage availability and changing environmental conditions. Record keeping can support management decisions needed to effectively manage both pasture and stored forage.
