Pasture growth continues to be modest with cool temperatures and limited moisture until this past week. For optimum pasture performance give the grasses and legumes an opportunity to produce a minimum of 10-12 cm of new growth before turning livestock into a paddock. In an ideal situation each paddock provides one day’s forage for the livestock with daily moves to a new paddock. If daily moves are not possible the maximum length of stay in any paddock should be no more than 5 days. Each additional day beyond 1 is will reduce pasture productivity.
