The 3-Step approach

Published 9 February 10

The DairyCo 3-Step Sward Management System provides a practical approach to improved sward management involving:

  • Pasture Walking to monitor the amount of grass available for use,
  • Sward Assessment to judge the best time to let cows into and remove them from individual pastures,
  • Sward Budgeting to plan grazing availability ahead of time to make the most of grazed grass over the entire grazing season.
