    I don't know much about all this, I've never run cows… But from all the videos I've been watching on cover crops and grazing, all these fields look quite overgrazed and compacted. I don't know what sort of equipment was around in 2012-2014 while he was experimenting with subdividing those paddocks but now there's even a solar-powered, timed-release gate connector so you can set your paddocks ahead of time and let the cows move themselves. The extra growth in cover crops can produce a financial return to cover the initial capital and extra man-hours setting up paddocks through reduced need for fertilization of cash crops (and possibly higher yields) and increased feed production for cattle, letting you increase your herd size.
