The wise use of highly erodible marginal land is an important economic and environmental issue. Rotational grazing for livestock is one method of land use improvement suitable for HEL or other cropland that needs to be converted to pasture. Using an existing demonstration farm in Adams County, Iowa, various paddock arrangements and forage varieties were tested to help farmers devise appropriate sustainable grazing systems.
