Are multi-paddock grazing systems economically justifiable?

Are multi-paddock grazing systems economically justifiable?

Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa 8(1): 29-34

The financial implications of few- and multi-paddock systems were modelled by a discounted cash flow analysis with the (discounted) present value as the dependent variable, and number of paddocks, farm rundown time, time horizon and discount rate as the independent variables. Present values were higher for few- than multi-paddocks where rundown was slow, time horizon short and discount rate high. Present values were always higher for few- than for multi-paddocks when time horizon was short.
