What is a Management Intensive Grazing System?
Management intensive grazing (also known as rotational grazing management) is a system where grazing is managed for both the benefit of the livestock and forage. Livestock graze in each pasture long enough to harvest the forage, but are removed before too much leaf area is consumed. A basic system may have 4 or 5 pastures while a more management intensive system will have 8 to 10 pastures.


Why should I attend this school?
The single most important management factor in determining the profitability of a livestock operation is keeping feed cost low. So why buy forage when you can grow high quality feed yourself through a management intensive grazing (MIG) system? Cost control, not the amount of production, separates profitable from unprofitable operations. Through a MIG system you can keep your cost down and production in most cases will increase, all while helping out
the environment.In addition to profits to your pocket book and environmental benefits you may be eligible to receive cost share assistance to help establish your MIG system. Check with you local SWCD or NRCS office for further information.
