Unlocking the Benefits of Rotational and Mob Grazing at Carreg Farm

At Carreg Farm, we're not just passionate about producing top-quality meats – we're also dedicated to sustainable and ethical farming practices. One of the key methods we employ to achieve this is rotational and mob grazing. Let's explore the benefits:

1. Enhanced Soil Health: Rotational grazing involves moving livestock to fresh pasture regularly, allowing grazed areas to rest and recover. This practice promotes healthier soil by reducing compaction and erosion, improving water infiltration, and increasing organic matter content.

2. Improved Pasture Quality: Grazing animals in smaller, concentrated areas (mob grazing) encourages even forage consumption and trampling, leading to better nutrient distribution and improved pasture growth. This results in higher-quality forage for our animals, ensuring they receive optimal nutrition.

3. Biodiversity Promotion: Rotational grazing supports greater biodiversity by mimicking natural grazing patterns and allowing vegetation to recover between grazing cycles. Diverse plant species thrive in our pastures, providing habitat for insects, birds, and other wildlife.

4. Carbon Sequestration: Healthy pastures play a vital role in carbon sequestration, helping to mitigate climate change by storing carbon in the soil. By practicing rotational and mob grazing, we contribute to carbon sequestration efforts while producing nutritious meats.

5. Animal Welfare: Our livestock benefit from rotational and mob grazing systems by enjoying access to fresh pasture, ample forage diversity, and reduced exposure to parasites. This promotes overall animal health and well-being, resulting in happier and healthier animals.

6. Sustainable Resource Management: Rotational grazing optimizes resource use by efficiently utilizing available pasture while minimizing environmental impact. This sustainable approach supports long-term farm viability and resilience.
