Rotational Grazing

We have several pastures that we rotate the sheep through. They stay in each pasture for a few days, and when the grass starts getting scarce, we let them into the next pasture:


Here's a photo of the pasture they just finished (on left) and the one that they're about to start (on right):


By the time the sheep rotate through all the pastures, the first ones have rested and grown up again. So we start over. Hopefully, some of these pastures will also be cut for hay. Depends how fast the grass grows...

  1. I moved my girls yesterday, too. The rams need to be rotated, but have some fence repair to complete first. Its so nice to have the good grass right now, isn't it?
