Managing Pasture Book
The health and profitability of grass-based livestock begins with the food they eat.
In Managing Pasture, author Dale Strickler guides farmers and ranchers through the practical and ideological considerations behind caring for the land as a key part of running a successful grass-based operation, from the profitability of replacing expensive grain feed with nutrient-rich native grasses to the benefits of ecologically-minded land management.

In-depth examinations of the biology and benefits of grazing plants and different grazing strategies accompany detailed plans for paddock and fencing set-ups, livestock watering, and effective methods for dealing with common pasture problems throughout the seasons, from mud to drought.
For readers invested in pasture improvement strategies that offer environmental benefits beyond better meat and dairy, including carbon sequestration, erosion prevention, increased pollinator resources and wildlife habitat, and improved water quality, Managing Pasture is an approachable, accessible guide to creating and caring for the grassland that feeds animals and future generations.

Very nice introductory overview to pasture management for livestock production. I especially appreciated the sections on grazing systems for beef cattle. Ideas founded on science balanced with practical application knowledge producers know but scientists miss due to limitations of experimental design.

The best book, by far, that I have ever read on pasture management. Understandable and entertaining.
