ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the factors to consider when planning for cow tracks cited during the Grassland UK seminar held in England. A good track can prevent poaching, improve foot health, reduce housing costs and provide for flexible grazing. The number of cows using the track, its width, route and cost should be determined when developing cow tracks. Farmers should make a farm map of the grazing area during the planning process for track routes.
