All the principles of sustainable grazing management can be summarized in one rather strange statement: your cattle should appear not to have legs! Their short legs should be hidden in tall grass. Both animal genetics and pasture management contribute to this philosophy. In this article, I’ll start with cattle selection and care protocols. In Part 2, I will cover forage considerations.


FEATURED COMMENT

Thank you to online reader Richard for your comment on 6 Incredible Facts About Kinetic Log Splitters:

"I just recently upgraded my wood splitting from a sledge and wedge to an hydraulic splitter. I like the slower speed of the hydraulic splitter. I would be concerned about safety and breakage issues with the faster kinetic machine. I cut and split wood only for personal use, so I am not concerned about speed. If I were a commercial wood monger I would be more interested in speed and these machines may be attractive. But, for now, I will stick with the tried and true hydraulic machines."

Do you have some log splitting tips? Leave a follow-up comment.
