Conservation grazing is livestock grazing that promotes biodiversity.
Many nature reserves are now managed using grazing animals.
Due to their typically hardy and thrifty nature, our rare and native breeds are generally considered to be the best animals for this job.
Increasingly, the sorts of techniques employed in conservation grazing are being used in a range of farming systems to create sustainable production with reduced inputs.
This benefits not only livestock and habitats, but also human health through the benefits of consuming meat from animals reared on varied pasture diets.
