Virginia Tech Researchers study mob Stocking

Researchers at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University received a two-year Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Graduate Student Grant to investigate water quality runoff and nutrient losses in mob stocking as compared to rotational grazing systems. Mob stocking is a land management practice where high-density livestock populations are grazed in small areas for a brief amount of time. The results of the research should reveal the level of runoff and nitrogen and phosphorus losses in mob stocking versus rotational grazing.
