Stockpiled Mob Grazing
We've moved through several paddocks now and I'm really happy with the way the paddocks look after we've moved out. There's a lot of tromped in grass and although the cows have picked it close in spots, overall, I'd score the residual a 3 to a 4. We are currently over half way through the Stocker Pasture and even though it's been cold, the pastures we've mob grazed are much greener than the neighbors pastures. The abundant snowfall really pushed a lot of the standing forage into the ground, but 10 acres still seems to be enough groceries for the 370 head of cows that currently make up the mob.
