Lesson 1: Getting Started with Pastures

There are several considerations to make when getting started with pastures. Animal species, stocking rate, and animal nutrition are a few of the more important considerations to make.

According to Wikipedia, pasture is land used for grazing. In the narrow sense, pastures are enclosed tracts of farmlands grazed by domesticated livestock, such as horses, cattle, sheep, goats, or swine. The vegetation of tended pasture consists mainly of grasses with interspersion of legumes and other forbs.
