AREAS OF FOCUS
The SC Forage and Grazing Lands Coalition is a member-driven group focused on educating ourselves and helping others learn about soil health and grasslands management.
The capacity of the soil to function affects ecological processes, including the capture, storage and redistribution of water; the growth of plants and cycling of health nutrients.Keys to Better Soil Health
Rotational grazing is using only one portion of a pasture at a time for grazing while the remainder of the pasture rests. Pastures are divided into smaller areas or paddocks and livestock are moved from one area to another. Resting grazed paddocks allows forage plants to renew energy reserves, rebuild vigor, deepen their root system and give long-term maximum production.Guide to Rotational Grazing
IMPROVED PASTURE PRODUCTIVITY
Pastures receive periodic renovation and cultural treatments such as tillage, fertilization, mowing, weed control, and may be irrigated. Pasture vegetation can consist of grasses, legumes, other forbs, shrubs or a mixture. Pasture differs from range in that it primarily produces vegetation that has initially been planted to provide preferred forage for grazing livestock.Pasture Condition Scoring
MANAGING GRASSLANDS FOR PROFIT
Grazing lands cover more than 34 million acres or 10 percent of the land in nine Southeastern states, providing $4.4 billion to the economy. Good grazing management can improve your bottom line and protect natural resources.Managing Grasslands for Profit
The SC Forage and Grazing Lands Coalition is a member-driven group focused on educating ourselves and helping others learn about soil health and grasslands management. We received the American Forage and Grasslands Council President’s Award for 2017.
The SCFGLC is an affiliate of these national soil health and grazing land management organizations.
