Windrow grazing is a process by which a crop is windrowed and left in the field for grazing at a later time. By windrowing or swathing the crop in the early fall, in areas where a majority of the moisture comes seasonally in the spring and summer months, many crops will maintain their quality during the fall and winter months with minimum deterioration. These swaths can then be grazed with livestock at a later time using temporary electric fence to ration out the feed and minimize feed waste.
