Grazing practices are diverse: different terms are used to designate distinct techniques. However, these practices do fall into two main categories: continuous grazing and rotational grazing. In continuous grazing, animals spend extended periods of time in a given paddock. In contrast, in rotational grazing, the goal is to optimise grass growth and utilisation by moving animals from paddock to paddock. In this paper, we discuss the technical characteristics, benefits, and constraints associated with different grazing practices. The grazing practices used may vary depending on production type and livestock species (cattle, sheep, goats, or horses). Numerous experiments were conducted to compare the performance of different practices under diverse conditions and in response to different livestock. The technical results and economics of a given set of practices also depend on many other factors.
