What is Mob Grazing?

Mob grazing is a ranching technique in which a large number of ruminant (grass-eating) animals are placed on a small area of pasture for a short time.

 

This “mob” (cattle, sheep, goats, or other species) is moved to a new paddock (part of the pasture) once every day or two. Every paddock is given a 60-120 day regrowth period before it is grazed again. This grazing strategy mimics the way buffalo once traveled the Great Plains: eating together in one spot, then not returning to it for months.

 

Below is an example pasture diagram. Inside the permanent perimeter fence (red), cattle are rotated through the numbered temporary paddocks. These paddocks are constructed quickly and easily using portable electric fencing. Water points (blue circles) are placed to allow access from multiple paddocks.
