This benefits both the pasture and the livestock. Early grazing also Is too high In water content to provide nutrients which' livestock require for full growth, maintenance and production. Often, for tlio first few weeks after pasture becomes green, it does not supply enough forage to satisfy animals' appetite, and, even when the ' np|>ellle is satisfied, animals cannot eat enough to provide nutrients they need.
