Swath Grazing


Here at Greener Pastures Ranching, we like to do our winter feeding in as economical a fashion as possible. While bale grazing is our preferred feeding option, there have been times when due to circumstances such as hay being hard to find or incredibly expensive, we have bale grazed later in the winter or have foregone bale grazing altogether and swath grazed instead. Like bale grazing we will leap frog across the swaths using temporary electric fence with step in posts. Always do a feed test on the swaths to make sure that your animals are getting all of the nutrients that they need while swath grazing.
