Accessing land for pasture-based livestock production, particularly adaptive grazing, can be a barrier for beginning or established graziers to start or expand their herds. Contract grazing provides a solution to this challenge by using grazing leases to connect graziers and landowners for mutual gain. By providing access to forage without ownership, contract grazing helps graziers increase their forage stock and herd productivity while generating soil health and other income for land owners.
In this webinar, Robert Bauer, Grazing Specialist with Southwest Badger RC&D, and Mike Mueller, Owner of Double M Cattle Company, will share the fundamentals of contract grazing and how it can most effectively be applied, including contract arrangements, negotiation strategies and conservation planning.
