Rancher Grady Grissom discusses the lessons he's learned from deploying a deferred-rotation system of managed grazing on his 14,000-acre ranch. But he doesn't like the term "grazing system." He says you don't choose a "system." You graze toward a goal. His goal in recent years has been to encourage the growth of cool-season grasses. That's meant longer periods of rest for pastures.
