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

The Wildebeest Migration - Timelapse

The time-lapse conveys the magnitude of the migration. This footage was shot over five days in northern Serengeti, Tanzania. It shows the migrating wildebeest crossing the Mara River while moving south into Tanzania from Kenya.The Serengeti Ecosystem supports 1.5 million wildebeest. These wildebeest are forced to migrate around a 40 000 square kilometre area in order to find fresh grazing pastures. The migration is full of danger and hardship for these resilient creatures. Thirst, hunger, exhaustion, predation and the Mara River are just some of the challenges they must face.
