Maximising results from autumn grass with strip grazing

Autumn is once again upon us. This means the days are getting shorter and wetter. As a result, grass growth slows down and stops altogether later in the season. After a dry summer with little grass growth and limited nitrogen uptake and leaching, grass growth picks up once more when autumn comes with more precipitation. Due to the abundant nitrogen in the soil, the grass has a high protein content. This makes autumn grass very valuable.
