In this webinar, Karin Lindquist, Forage/Beef Specialist with the Ag-Info Centre, will share how to observe the plants in your pasture to determine when to start grazing and how long to allow plants to recover. She will also provide other tips and tricks and rules of thumb for optimal grazing management.
