Livestock producers pondering stocking rates now have an app to help them determine that ratio, according to experts.
GrazingCalc is a new mobile smartphone application developed by Texas A&M University’s Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences, its Department of Ecosystem Science, and management units of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
“One of the most common problems livestock managers deal with is determining the best number of livestock to have on the land without harming their resources,” said Blake Alldredge, an AgriLife Extension associate in College Station. “That task has just become easier with the release of this new app.”
