Messages from the MPI Sustainable Farming Fund project 'Pasture Management in a Volatile World'.

‘Deferred grazing’ is a management tool to maintain pasture quality on pastoral farms from mid-spring onwards. It involves dropping some paddocks out of the rotation to optimise grazing pressure on the remaining paddocks, so pasture quality is maintained.

This resource outlines the methodology and results from deferred grazing trials on farms in the Kaimai Ranges (Bay of Plenty) and Waingaro (north-western Waikato).
