Our cows are mob grazed. Which essentially means they are stocked at high intensity for a short duration. We move them from paddock to fresh pasture on a daily basis. This emulates the native grazing habit of wild herbivores on the great plains of Africa and USA. These animals continuously move as they graze. Studies have found this grazing strategy is helpful to the soil and the environment. Building humus levels in the soil and sequestrating carbon.
As the cattle graze, they selectively eat the leafy material of the plants and trample the remaining stalky parts. This gives opportunity for earthworms and other creatures in the soil to feed on the trampled material, enhancing the soil biology and improving overall soil quality.
Our finishing cattle are grazed in the same manner but at around 20-22 months are fed on a special diet to help them grow muscle and lay down the characteristic inter-muscular marbling.
