Gaining Ground: Successful graziers tell their stories

Thousand of farmers raise livestock on grasslands throughout Virginia. These grasslands have the potential to be very productive, but it largely depends on how the livestock are managed on the pastures.

More and more farmers are transitioning from continuous grazing their livestock to a higher level of grazing management. Their goal is to save time and money by grazing their livestock more days throughout the year and therefore having to feed less hay to overwinter their herd. Watch and listen over the next few minutes as these Virginia graziers explain how they are truly gaining ground.
