With the continuing volatility of energy costs, livestock producers are looking for ways to save on inputs. Stockpiling forage to extend the grazing season and strip grazing to improve forage utilization offer economic and environmental benefits. In this video, three livestock producers describe how extending the grazing season has saved them time and money, while also improving the environment; and they demonstrate the methods they used to achieve these savings. Sponsored by the Natural Resources Conservation Service's East National Technology Support Center, this video shows that livestock producers in any region of the US where there are pastures can take advantage of this system. Much of the data presented was collected and analyzed as part of projects covering more than 25 farms in North Carolina in a collaborative effort between North Carolina NRCS and North Carolina State University's Animal Science Department.

This video was produced through a partnership agreement between Dr. Robin 'Buz' Kloot, Earth Sciences and Resources Institute, University of South Carolina, and the USDA NRCS East National Technology Support Center.
