Riparian Areas and Grazing Management – Corridors and Holding Pastures

Sometimes you have no choice! If you’re parking livestock in a small riparian field for a period of time be sure to supplement feed, water away from the banks and provide a long rest period once the animals are out of there. Corridor fencing can protect the streambank but what about the rest of the floodplain (riparian area)? Maybe go a little wider and make it grazeable.
