Plenty a Pasture

We have a problem-- too much pasture, or is it not enough animals. This year the pasture has done awesome, we even have an area that has not been grazed at all and waiting for it's second cutting (to bale for winter feed). The area that is being grazed is still growing like crazy, the idea would be that it not reach almost waist height but even when it does these animals will eat it all! All this grass is food that makes the best meat that money can buy! We don't have to add fertilizers cause the waste the animals produce is fertilizer enough, we don't have to water or mechanically harvest, except what is needed for winter. This is sustainable farming at it's best.Yes I am wearing a lime green shirt and purple pants- farm animals do not care about fashion
