Arkansas has more than 34,000 farms containing more than 3.6 million acres of grazing land--and almost every acre of it could be benefitted by implementing grazing practices! Prescribed Grazing (pasture management) matches forage composition and herd requirements to optimize production. By extending the grazing season, graziers may lower expenses, reduce labor, and produce superior forage.
