COMMON MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN PASTURE


COMMON MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN PASTURE

Some common management practices in pasture to ensure continuous supply of grasses and legumes to livestock include the following:
(1) Burning: Burning should be done once in a year, especially when the forage crops are over-mature and fibrous. This is to encourage regrowth of the grasses and legumes.
(2) Fencing: This is the partitioning of the pasture into sections called paddocks to facilitate rotational grazing.
(3) Application of Fertilizer: Application of fertilizers in the pasture ensures rapid and succulent growth of pasture because of increase in the fertility of the soil.
(4) Weed Control: Weeds should be removed regularly from the pasture to prevent competition with forage plants for nutrients and space.
(5) Pests and Diseases Control: These should be prevented to ensure rapid growth of pasture crops.
(6) Irrigation: Pasture farm should be irrigated, especially during the dry season to ensure the availability of fresh and succulent grasses all the year round
(7) Adequate Stocking: The correct number of animals should be place on a pasture to graze. Overgrazing should be prevented.
