Pastures

When managing your pastures, think of yourself as a grass farmer.  The pasture grasses are your crop and your livestock do the harvesting.  Check out our pasture management fact sheets to learn ways to dramatically improve the productivity of your pastures (your grass crop).  Find out how to prevent overgrazing, determine the amount and type of fertilizer your soil needs, reduce weeds (without having to use pesticides), and how to put manure to use and encourage even grazing of pastures.
