This magazine has been advocating rotational grazing for decades. Good magazine.

I used rotational grazing twenty years ago when I had Beefmaster cattle. It works.

Hey all,

Its because of this topic that im going to do the strip grazing deal, since i first read this post i have done a bit of research, so ive come back here because i just wanted to add another way of dividing the paddock.

1, water in the centre of the paddock
2, fence off the water as stated in greg judy's video
3, place the first temp fence straight out anywhere to the edge of the paddock
4, place the next fence at 1 o'clock,
5, (so remembering that you want to minimise traffic at the water) then next day or when needed 2 o'clock or 1:30 depends what the area is etc etc.

Should look something like a wagon wheel.

Just my thoughts.
