To decrease the financial risks associated with inadequate animal performance, it is critical that you match the livestock production cycle to the availability and quality of forages.  This publication examines how to manage grazing to best match the quantity and quality of forage during a normal year. Included are options for maintaining stocking flexibility when growing conditions are less than favorable.  (5 pp., 3 figures) By Tim Steffens, Eric Bailey, Marty Rhoades and David Lust
