The three major themes of the Amazing Grazing Program include: Improved Profitability, Improved Animal Health and Well Being, and Improved Environmental Sustainability. When these three themes can be achieved in a production system, it becomes clear that pasture-based systems are good for farmers, good for their neighbors, and good for our non-farming population.

Improved Profitability: Haying is one of the most expensive activities we undertake on livestock farms.

Improved Animal Health and Well-Being: Good pasture management including rotational grazing improves temperament of the animals.

Improved Environmental Stewardship: Improving your grazing management does many things to improve the environment.
