• Graze cover crops using temporary fencing.
  • As pasture growth begins, rotate through pastures quickly to keep up with the fast growth of spring.
  • As pasture growth exceeds the needs of the livestock, remove some fields from the rotation and allow growth to accumulate for hay.
  • Determine need for supplemental warm season forages.
  • Flash graze pastures newly seeded with clovers to manage competition.
