Overgrazing

Have a friend here in WC IA who has had quite a few cows die this winter, they came off grass looking bad and never really recovered. I finally think I have him convinced he is overgrazing, he has been running a pair every 2.5 acres, thats just too much. My honest opinion in driving around my area is that overgrazing had become a real problem. I think we forget we are a heck of a lot closer to Nebraska than Illinois, in my part of the state. He has gotten a new pasture that has been in CRP, hopefully that will take the pressure off of his other pastures a bit. In my area I have come to the realization that these cows on average just aren't getting what they need to be at there very best.
