High density system mimics migrating herds

Rotational grazing is nothing new. It is popular around the country as a way to improve grass stands and increase stocking rates. Chad Peterson, Newport, Neb., has taken the concept of rotational grazing one step further by dramatically increasing both the stocking rate and the frequency of moves.

Peterson said he started out with rotational grazing on his north central Nebraska ranch and began taking it more extreme all the time with more frequent moves. In 2001, he had a chance to visit with Allan Savory and there he decided that the thing to do was to really bunch these animals up.
