Make your life easier and more profitable with a grazing chart!

After seeing the difference grazing charts made for him and his farm, Troy developed and led a project funded by Northeast SARE to put together a range of charts to respond to farmers and ranchers needs no matter how they ran their operations.  The project, called “Utilizing Holistic Planned Grazing as a Regenerative Engine for Sustainable Agriculture” also trained agency specialists in the use of the charts.

To get your own FREE grazing chart, click on the one below that best fits your operation size and number of paddocks.  It will open in this window as a PDF.  Save the file to your computer and you’re ready to go.  If you want your chart to be big enough to hang on your wall and write on it, you’ll need to take it to your local copy shop to have it enlarged.  That takes the cost of this priceless tool up to about $4.
