How Livestock Eat: Understanding Grazing Animal Behavior for Improved Livestock and Resource Management

Watch the Recording

Understanding grazing behavior is an important part of grazing management. Knowing how grazing animals eat, how they learn to eat, and when they eat provides a basis for using grazing behavior to interpret how much forage is available for grazing. When and how often supplemental feeds are offered can affect time spent grazing as well as herd interactions. An understanding of grazing behavior relative to grazing distribution is critical for understanding the relationship between grazeable acres and carrying capacity.
