Cell Grazing in Low Rainfall

Neil Sleep discusses the cell grazing system he has developed on the family farm near Peterborough in the Upper North of South Australia with Michael Wurst from Rural Solutions SA. The dedicated use of a grazing management chart is the heart of the system. The success of the system is resting paddocks long enough, never allowing them to be grazed past the point of 50% feed on offer. This project is supported by Upper North Farming Systems, through funding from the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country, Eyre Peninsula NRM Board and Rural Solutions SA.
