There are two main ways of feeding to livestock – the first is strip grazing behind an electric fence which should be moved daily. It is advised to keep a close eye on the levels of wastage which will help determine when you move the fence. A grass runback area is recommended. The second way to feed to the livestock is zero grazing - cutting the crop with a forage harvester will help secure the maximum use of green feed with little waste.
