Northwest Minnesota farmer “big advocate” of rotational grazing
A farmer in northwest Minnesota is a strong believer in rotational grazing.
Mikayla Tabert raises beef cattle and grows several different crops near Red Lake Falls.
“I’m definitely a big advocate for rotational grazing, and you can do it in whatever context that works. We love to have one-day moves as much as possible, but during the winter we go to three-day moves just for labor and energy savings.”
She tells Brownfield rotational grazing provides soil health and crop nutrient benefits.
“Even just crop ground when we switch to three-day moves for strip-grazing, the manure distribution is so much more even.”
Tabert says residue management is crucial to ensuring the manure is spread evenly across the field.
