Strip grazing is a tactic used to increase feed on offer (FOO) during winter and is a valuable management tactic for wool growers wanting to increase stocking rates, maintain stocking rates in poorer seasons or improve the quality of wool produced.

This calculator allows you to determine the area of the strip within a paddock required for your sheep.
