Abstract

Two grazing systems have been demonstrated annually from 1991–2003 on CRP land near Corning, Iowa. This report summarizes the 2003 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 participation on steeply sloping (9–14% slope), highly-erodible land (HEL).
