Description of the measure

Shift the grazing time into the night time when it is cooler outside

Comments on sustainability

During very hot periods, the temperature outside is so high that during the day it can be cooler in the barn than on the pasture. The animals prefer to stay in the barn. During the night, the conditions on the pasture will be more comfortable for the animals. This increases the need of organization.
