Dr, Richard Teague Says "Don't Overgraze and Don't Overstock" and You Can Be a Success in Rangeland Management

Dr. Richard Teague is originally from South Africa- and now is a researcher and Professor for Texas A&M's Agrilife facility in Vernon, Texas. Dr. Teague is world renowned for his work in what is called AMP Grazing. AMP Grazing- or Adaptive Multi-Paddock Grazing- is at the heart of his work in Sustainable Rangeland Management.
Ron Hays Beef Buzzes with Richard Teague of Texas Agrilife about Sustainable Rangeland Mgt
Dr. Teague was the midday keynoter at the Regenerative Agriculture Conference sponsored by the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts- and he offered his insights into how AMP Grazing is built on a plan tha starts with building up the health of the soil of the rangeland. On the sidelines of the Conference- Dr. Teague talked with Radio Oklahoma Ag Nework Farm Director Ron Hays about his approach to helping ranchers achieve economic success with a plan built on sustainable principles.
Teague says that "there's two things in grazing that you must avoid- the one is over stocking and the other one is over grazing. Over stocking is having too many animals for the amount of forage that is on the ground because there must be enough grasses to feed the animals but also to carry out the eco system functions that leaving enough grass behind does. And over grazing is to graze for too long- the cattle keep biting the same plants and destroying them- and not allowing them enough time to recover. So, it's a combination of these two things- and we call this Adaptive Multipaddock Grazing."
He adds that you must learn how to adjust your grazing levels based on the climatic conditions on that ranch- including how much rain which dictates how much forage is being produced.
