Pasture Management


To maximise the effectiveness of a grazing based farming operation the key is to keep the grass fresh, short, high energy and palatable which ultimately leads to increased milk and/or meat production. Electric fencing has revolutionised these pasture management techniques meaning better profitability for farmers.


Read the introduction article to find out why rotational grazing systems are so effective. Other case studies here show how market leading Gallagher products are making the traditional pasture grazing methods ever more efficient and successful.
