Rotational grazing

With Sun brings grazing and with grazing brings thought on how to make it Summer, Autumn and hopefully into the Winter grazing.

We have this great idea given to us by a lovely customer

How to make a field into 4 sections allowing the movement of your animals around,

 

 

Rotational GrazingRotational grazing in quartersHello happy sheep behind a 3 reel system

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This system uses 1.4 meter high posts so will keep sheep, goats, pigs and cattle and if you have more alternative animals lamas and alpacas happily grazing, if you want this for horses it is suggested at least the top line is either rope or tape as a visual aid for them. This great set up can be used for a temporary or permanent set up. over time if you want it to be permanent then you can put in a few wooden posts to help with stability.

As you can see from the pictures, this system has quartered off the field into 4 easy to manage sections this will allow great rotation all in the same fields and allow the other areas to rest enough for the regrowth of lush strong grass ready to be munched on later in the rotation.

Depending on the size of area you are rotational grazing, the animals and the amount of lines you are using will have an impact on your choice of many things but the correct energiser is essential

As you can see there are a lot to choose from if you become overwhelmed give us a call.

Here are the batteries, the top 3 suit all of the 12v energisers

Once you have decided on your choice of energiser and power source it is then onto the planning of your fence, Here are some of the items needed/involved in the rotational grazing

The fence itself - this could be wire, rope, tape or polywire

Are you using wooden,  plastic or metal posts or you might use a combination of two types,       If wooden then you will need insulators , for the Plastic option or the Metal option.

 

We would always recommend the use of a fence tester (its not much fun testing it yourself)

With rotational grazing or any type of temporary of semi permanent grazing there will come a time when you have to either move it or remove it for some reason when this comes about there is usually a huge pile of tangles fencing to deal with, well check out these nifty little things the reels will help you keep your fencing contained and tidy when not in use ( or if you only want to use half of the fence the other half can be kept on the reel for safe keeping) The reels can be added to a wooden post of the metal reel fixing post in the reel link.

Gates is something we generally can not do without, I say this to everyone if you can put the fence up leaving the gate to be added after wards as a separate piece of fence other wise every time you open the gate this happens, the whole fence becomes untensioned and you might have a escapee further down the field.
