Conservation Grazing - the right animal in the right place at the right density.
The Rare Breeds Survival Trust promotes the use of rare and native breeds for conservation grazing. Increasingly used in the countryside sector conservation grazing uses livestock to restore or maintain rare habitats. Some conservation organisations own and manage their own flocks and herds for the sole purpose of grazing, some work in partnership with graziers who provide livestock. Ruth Dalton from RBST talks about the benefits of using different animals and how many sites can benefit from this type of management.
