When You Feed a Cow... Watch the Cow... Ian Mitchell-Innes

By Ian Mitchell-Innes

You feed the bacteria in the Rumen. The health of the Bacteria, will dictate: Performance, Immunity, General health...

Carbon - pH - Protein - Energy - Water - Minerals...










The cow knows where the best Energy is. Sometimes it is in the most unexpected plants. A cow will try and balance her diet, if given the selection.





Grow unwanted plants. Plan for what you want. Use what you have. Planned Grazing, manipulating Time and Stock Density, will grow what you want. Same Paddock, two years later.




Energy is the elusive part of the equation to achieve animal performance... A ruminant knows were the best Energy is.... Use this ability to plan your grazing. Monitor the animal...




All Life needs Energy... Only animals can get the Energy through the soil surface. Action of grazing... Kinetic Energy, action of hooves on the soil surface... Symbiotic Energy, the Energy field around each animal...






There is enough seed already produced. Just create the Environment for the seed that is there, to germinate.



Manage animals with Time. Use the animals ability to select the best Energy. Always manage for animal performance. With out animal performance, you could go broke. As numbers increase, the Stock Density will Increase.

One Day Soil... The bigger the herd, the better the animals do and the quicker the soil is restored. The more Carbon (plant material) is trodden onto and into the soil, the better the soil does.

We need to manage the livestock to make sure the soil is covered with growing plants or litter, to keep the soil at a more constant temperature and feed life in the soil.
