* For the purposes of this article, we are using AE / DSE as our animal unit rating example, but you can choose which ever unit rating you wish through your farm settings.

AgriWebb makes it simple for you to plan your grazing rotation with our grazing insights.

On the Mobile App, select the cog symbol to show the map settings. Under insights, select change to see the different options.

On the Web App, go to Insights in the top left corner.

When planning your next rotation, consider the following:

Grazing days remaining
This is calculated by AgriWebb based on Feed on Offer (FOO), Pasture Growth Rate, Stocking Rate, Planned Supplemental Feed and Minimum FOO set by users. This can be useful to help identify which mobs need to be moved next.

Days Empty (Spelling Period)
This is useful to help identify which paddocks your mobs should be moved to next, by quickly identifying which paddocks have been spelled the longest.

Feed on Offer (FOO)

This is updated either manually by users or automatically via the CiboLabs integration. This is useful to help identify which paddocks your mobs should be moved to next, by quickly identifying which paddocks have the most feed on offer.

Establishing a Grazing Plan

It all starts with setting a mobs Animal Unit Rating when you add the livestock for the first time or by updating that rating from their mob information card. In AgriWebb you are able to choose between different units such as Dry Sheep Equivalent (DSE), Livestock Units (LSU), Adult Equivalent (AE), etc as your preferred standard livestock measurement unit.

Using the Grazing Planner

Note this is only available for mob management subscriptions and not individual management.
The Grazing plan can be updated at any time, or each time livestock are moved from paddock to paddock. Avoid overgrazing by entering Feed on Offer (FOO), Pasture growth rates, supplementary feed, Animal Unit Rating and your Target Minimum FOO.

Create a Grazing Plan when moving livestock to a new paddock. Click NEXT to fill out the required details, press Save to finalise your movement.

Make sure you check out our article on Feed on Offer to learn how to quickly and easily update FOO, Pasture Growth Rates and Minimum FOO.

This information is then used to determine the number of grazing days remaining for each paddock and your stocking rate. This data can be assessed through the Paddock Grazing Intensity and AE / DSE load by Paddock reports to show performance across the entire farm and to develop a comprehensive feed budget.

These reports are accessed from the Web App, and by selecting the Reports tab from the navigation panel to the left.
