  • Manage pasture and reduce wastage.
  • It enables the pasture to regenerate fast and at the same level.
  • It increases milk production since lactating herd have priority to access nutritious pasture.
  • Since animals are confided in small portions of land, the dung is evenly spread across the pasture hence available manure.
  • Keeping the pasture short will encourage the growth of clovers, which will help reduce fertilizer costs.
  • Reduction in contamination of animals with infectious parasites.
  • Most important, it is better for pasture to be grazed at the most nutritious stage of it’s life cycle. If you find the grass a head is getting away return the herd to the grass that is still nutritious.
