The boundary between the grazed and ungrazed sections of the lower pasture caught my eye this afternoon.

Sheep and fence are implied, and the image tells the story of grazing management — uniformly eaten pasture now allowed to rest and recover, with the next paddock awaiting the arrival of the flock.  Bill has been preaching the value of short, intensive grazing followed by long recovery, and I’m already seeing the benefits on my fields. Much of the grass around the area is heading into dormancy as November overtakes us, but most of my pastures are lush and green, the grass growing vigorously in response to earlier rounds of grazing this summer.
