A design like the picture above shows the handling facility that will be on on my cow-calf operation. This facility is located according to access from pastures, so cattle can go from pastures into the holding and sorting pens. Once in these pens cattle can follow through the layout where we can easily bring them into the squeeze chute. Also the facility will help us load the cattle when transporting.
Rotational grazing is another way to help let the grass recover. By moving the cattle from pasture to pasture over a certain period of time will help the grass grow. It can be time consuming and labor intensive but in the end it will mostly pay for itself.
