Abstract

Two grazing systems have been demonstrated on CRP land near Corning, Iowa annually from 1991 to 2002. This report summarizes the 2002 production data. A 13-paddock intensive-rotational grazing system and a 4-paddock rotational grazing system were established in 1991 to show economically feasible grass alternatives to row crops and CRP on steeply sloping (9-14% slope), highly-erodible land (HEL).
