In 2010, the MSU Lake City AgBioResearch Center changed research objectives from a conventional cow-calf production system to a holistically managed grazing system. During this timeframe, management strategies shifted to moderate cow size, dramatically lower inputs and market cattle through grass-finishing value chains. Important indicators of profitability such as grazing days per acre, mature cow size, grass-fed carcass weight and quality grade among others were monitored. Learn about the economic impact of these changes during the last decade and about future opportunities for farmers and ranchers who manage regeneratively.
