Carbon and Rotational Grazing

Grazing (Photo credit: EricMagnuson)

I'm a frequent reader of Mother Earth News for the recipes of nothing else.  Today I was rather pleased with this article that talks about how the correct management of cattle grazing patterns can improve soil carbon sequestration.  In some cases more so than leaving the land fallow

Mob (high-intensity) grazing is nothing new, but in recent years I've been hearing about it more and more frequently.  Here at the University of Kentucky there have been several studies looking at very high stocking rates on pastures and strip grazing corn.  Do you use high-intensity rotational grazing?  What are your thoughts?
