Publication of the Month: Using Dry Lots to Conserve Pastures (ID-171)

Here are some of the major benefits of using a dry lot:

  • 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
