How to Use a Leader-Follower Grazing System

In a leader-follower grazing system, animals with different forage needs pass through a pasture in succession, using the land more efficiently without destroying its ability to support livestock.

Eeyore (we name our livestock!) grazes in among the hazelnuts. Animals are rotated frequently to avoid hoof damage to tree roots. A portable two-strand polywire fence with a solar charger is all that is needed. For pigs, both strands are lowered to nose and ear height.
