PastureMap lets you keep grazing records for both pastures and subdivisions. Pasture boundaries remain the same throughout your season, but you can subdivide pastures and adjust your subdivisions as many times as needed during the season. PastureMap will keep track of your rest days and ADAs at both the pasture and subdivision levels. For example, you may graze an entire pasture without subdividing early in the season, and then subdivide it later in the season and graze it one subdivision at a time. All your subdivision grazing events will be kept in your pasture records, even after you adjust, retire, or redraw your subdivision boundaries.
