Self-herding is a behavior-based livestock management approach that provides livestock managers with strategies and tools to positively influence grazing distribution, and help livestock adapt to new surroundings. Self-Herding is based on natural behavior patterns of animals and is effective when they are in an unfamiliar environment.
It incorporates both animal temperament and animal movement into a number of easy-to-implement concepts that encourage small, everyday improvements in the way we manage our animals and pastures.
- The self-herding approach is being improved and developed by innovative producers we interact with, refine procedures and add new ones. It’s exciting to see self herding as an evolution, not just a revolution. We hope that by sharing the evidence from Rangelands Self Herding that you will believe that it can also work for you.
- The need for the science of self-herding is clear. To harnesses the power of self-organized learning and self-organized systems – that which self-manages its own development.
