Livestock farmers can heal the climate
Next Level Grazing focuses on intentful grazing management practices which build topsoil, increase carbon content, and ultimately leads to richer plant diversity and more productive farmland. Richer plant diversity encourages additional pollinators and native birds creating a full ecosystem regeneration. Utilizing ecological science around growing more pasture combined with mimicking nature to promote green vegetative regrowth, farmers using Next Level Grazing principles are able to grow more pasture faster with any given input. With healthier soil and more vigorous diverse plants, pastures are able to be more resilient and perform better through hot, dry summers. Other benefits can also be seen in:
Better animal performance
Better flavour of meat, cheese and other livestock products
Lower vet and medicine cost
Lower supplement feed cost
More birds and other wildlife on the farm
Fewer insect pests as farm ecology found better balance
Better water quality
better water infiltration and less flooding

Adaptive grazing management - building resilience into NZ grazing systems
In this Quorum Sense webinar we focused on grazing management and planning in a New Zealand landscape. Next Level Grazing founder, Siobhan Griffin, kicked off the webinar with a presentation on grazing principles and planning. The webinar includes hearing from other New Zealand farmers sharing their challenges, their learnings and of course their successes as they take on managing livestock and pastures to promote health, resilience and performance on farm.
