Abstract

Two rotational-grazing systems have been demonstrated on CRP land near Corning, Iowa, annually from 1991 to 2000. This report summarizes the 2000 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 for steeply sloping (9-14% slope), highlyerodible land (HEL).
