The pasture running is a solution to save the labor on the farms or the number of active reduces

The piecemeal approach of the exploitation is decisive for the choice of the type of pasture
In my case this are parcels of a has three hectares in majority
The plots its surrounded by hedges and natural roasting. if their surface is important they are divided with a fence fixed
image041image121
The upgrade to the grass will be from late February to early March depending on the growth of grass
image002-2.jpg
The aim is to get out the sheep as soon as possible( height of the grass about 30 cm)
image045
We chose the plots or its t implanted of fescues if the soil is too wet (we note that the fescues are little palatable e but resists well to the hesitations of or the importance of the graze in prime
image024
The dactyles are the main component of other parcels
image014
Two or three hectares of ray-bold italian mixed with oats will be used at the beginning of the implementation to the grass and then grazed regularly with a contribution of ammonium nitrate (30 U ) to encourage a second pushed faster then belatedly the refusal will be mowed late June
image047
It always starts with the plots the more adventitious (exposed to the south)to finish by the plots of exposure north) this are of natural grasslands with a varied flora
image022
We observed the offsets of pushes to grass in 15 days of an exponent to the other (DE L'Adret= SOUTH and UBAC=North)
image002
We also play on the late maturing varieties and to offset the growth of grass
image008.jpg
The sheep remain on the various parcels of 2 to 4 days is the amount of grass which determines the duration of grazing
We will take care of change of plot the sheep morning and evening two different parks by day but to return to the parcels up to pasture complements the goal is to make consume a maximum of grass (the fact of change field increases the envy on grazing of sheep)
The longer the period of grazing to measuring the consumption of the grass of the field
1° DAY 1H30
2° DAY 2H
3° DAY 3H

We will have to adapt the size of the parcel to the number of ewes and the speed of the growth of grass(out of the parcel before the regrowth of grass on the field)
The parcels will be mowed down quickly after the pasture to encourage the regrowth of the grass we privilegira the use of a disc mower
image008.jpg
The regrowth is faster than with a chopper of plants of more than one retrieves the hay, if it remains in the background of plot (it will agree to feed the ewes in the summer as the needs of the sheep are low)
image133 image157
To lead the sheep on the parcels we used a quad .the plots are to hand and others of a 'path of barriers are used for referral to the compel to enter in the field selected

The pasture supports end with the dry period by the lack of grass

The Sheep

Shepherd, soft sheep, shepherd this soft grass,
Do not forgive the flowers; you don't know both take
By the space of a day, that the night forfeiture
Wet do not happen as much as they did previously.
From there you will become more fat and more beautiful,
The abundance of milk your breasts swell,
And suffirez enough food to feed your lambs,
And to do that at any time of the new cheese.
