Grazed Grass (Setting up to Succeed) Farming Note

Grazed grass is a very cheap feed, typically with an ME of 11.5-12 and crude protein of 16-20%. Many herd owners and managers underestimate the value of grass and its use is limited by the perception that it is difficult to manage cows at grass, especially in higher yielding herds. This need not be the case however.

This Farming Note covers:

  • The benefits of grazed grass
  • The challenges of grazed grass
  • Grass allowance
  • Early turn out
  • Selecting the right grazing system
  • Reducing the hassle factor

Issued February 2007.
