Since rotational grazing of cover crops is not a common practice, to address some of the current questions from farmers of the upper Midwest, Sand County Foundation partnered with the Sauk Soil and Water Improvement Group (SSWIG; a farmer-led group) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison to explore short-term agronomic and environmental costs and benefits of managed grazing of cover crops. This hand-out/fact sheet summarizes four case-studies.
