I was at a university agricultural research farm and I noticed that sheep had maintained grass height on a pasture to less than 1 inch. I asked the person in charge if they used a lawn mower and he said "no, not needed".
I never throw away my grass clippings and always use them for compost. But after seeing this self sustaining agricultural cycle, I am looking for ways to implement this. The township ordinances will not allow me to rent livestock for "mowing the lawn" but I was wondering if I can take the grass clippings to farm for livestock feed. Will livestock consume grass clippings?
