carrying capacity

A pioneer of the high density grazing-approach almost doubled the carrying capacity of one of his farms from 16 ha/LSU (large stock unit) to 9 h/LSU. Mr. Norman Kroon from Graaff-Reinet in South Africa’s Eastern Cape is still reaping the fruit to move to high density grazing after 42 year. His inspiration was the high density grazing guru, Allan Savory. Watch this Ted Talk of Allan.
