- Maintain forage and reduce mud on a larger pasture scale
- Prevent erosion around fences, gates, and waterers
- Reduce the need for vegetation maintenance
- Function as central locations for watering and supplemental feeding for several pastures
- Provide shade
- Reduce the need to renovate pastures
