Evaluate and Change
(Lesson 1. Planning a Grazing System continued)
Use your records! Compare these numbers to the written goals in your plan. Is your farm moving in the right direction? Do you need to make changes in management? Maybe you have new or different goals that you want to incorporate into the plan and need to adjust your management accordingly. Once again, take notes as you do your evaluation, and seek advice. You can find professional information locally at your UMaine Extension county office, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), or Soil and Water Conservation District. You can also find valuable advice from your neighbors or other people in the industry.
