In this video, Denise and Angus Walton discuss how developing a rotational grazing system combined with deferred grazing for cattle wintering has seen a multitude of benefits for both farm profitability and biodiversity on farm.
The new grazing system has seen the business produce more from forage, become more resilient in drought conditions and slash cattle wintering costs. In doing so they are incorporating rest into the system allowing plants to grow taller, flower and set seed and this in turn is hugely beneficial for wildlife and biodiversity in creating sward structure, diversity and food sources.
