Management considerations for a grazing dairy in the northestern United States
Cows harvest their own forages-daily-for a good portion of the year on a grazing dairy.

This paper will discuss the high points of pasture management and forage preservation, nutrition, and other interesting factors affecting cow health and profitability on the grazing dairy.
