Why do farmers use deferred grazing?

  • Maintain pasture quality at farm-scale
  • Rejuvenate pastures

How do you do it?

  • Exclude stock 12-16 weeks: November – February
  • Up to 10-15% of farm depending on the farm / year
  • Allow desirable perennial species to set and drop seed
  • Aim for about 50% utilisation when grazing deferred pasture at end of summer
