Rotational grazing allows forage crops to renew energy reserves, rebuild plant vigor and give long-term maximum production. With a rotational grazing system, larger pastures are subdivided into smaller areas (often referred to as paddocks) with temporary fencing materials, and livestock are moved from one paddock to another on a prearranged schedule based on forage availability, stocking rate and livestock nutrition needs. The mainstay of a rotational grazing system is flexibility Ñ and nothing gives more flexibility than a highly movable temporary fence for subdividing larger pastures.
