Grazing Management

The grazing management project was established to evaluate and demonstrate the use of various remote grazing management technologies. Olds College is working to evaluate the functionality and value of several technologies to help producers understand how these technologies can help increase the efficiency of their intensive grazing systems.  The project is also comparing intensive and conventional grazing systems, side-by-side, to quantify the differences on animal performance, forage production and soil health (conventional vs rotational).

Project Information

Grazing Management: 2020 Summary

Remote sensing technology can bolster the effectiveness of rotational grazing so beef producers can receive benefits of improved pasture quality and liveweight gain.

  • Rotational grazed calves gained 0.35 lbs/day more than conventional grazed.
  • Feedback on remote management technologies will help inform producers on potential improvements.
