Alternate your stockpiled area with the rotationally grazed area, year to year, to help improve the whole ranch.
This time of year, ranchers may be moving cattle to pastures where the grass is over-mature. This results in reduced available nutrition for the cowherd and more waste of forage.
The solution is to stockpile the rest of the ranch, not grazing it, during the growing season in preparation for use in winter and spring.
When we manage this way it becomes a simple matter to evaluate how many days of forage we have left for the non-growing season, which could be for months or even years depending on environment brittleness.
