Grazing Management

Grazing management helps resist the invasion of serrated tussock by maintaining competition. Rotationally grazed pastures with high stocking rates and periods of no grazing allow pastures to recover. Avoid overgrazing as this weakens the pasture and makes it susceptible to serrated tussock. Constant monitoring of pasture is needed as well as flexibility in grazing options. Containment yards and destocking can be used to reduce overgrazing during periods of poor pasture growth.
