Image of the Week

This week's pick from the Animal Science Image Gallery is a pastoral view of ewes and lambs grazing.

The image description reads: Ewes and lambs in a managed intensive grazing (MIG) system on improved pasture in Central Ohio. Pasture is divided into small paddocks and sheep are moved every 1-5 days and paddock rest for 21-28 days between grazing. This method of grazing can improve animal productivity, manure distribution, and persistence of desirable species in the pasture.

Search for, download or submit images to the Gallery at: www.animalimagegallery.org.

There is no charge to download or submit images if you are an ASAS member.
