Rotational grazing
« on: January 14, 2024, 03:44:18 pm »
I have a 1 acre field which I can split into 2 with electric fencing.

Iíll be running a couple of goats on it plus there kids once born.

My question is how many days should I leave them on one side before swapping over? And vice versa etc.

Cheers,
Russ

Might get more answers if you post the question in "Goats".

I don't keep goats, and think of them as browsers rather than grazers, so I'm not much help to you I'm afraid! 
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
