Developing good grazing management programs can help ruminant producers reduce the amount of purchased feeds they use and produce the highest net income per grazing land unit. In Alabama, forages are abundant almost year-round, and most improved pasture plants grown in Alabama provide adequate nutrition for ruminants. Although extreme environmental conditions may require the supplemental use of hay, grain, protein, and minerals, the economic outlook for cattle, sheep, and goat production from pastureland appears to be excellent.
