Is it possible to have high average annual stocking rates [DSE/HA] relatively risk free high mid winter stocking rates and high feed utilization, but do it in a risk free and sustainable manner?

The graphs below show two farms with different stocking rates.

The higher stocking rate farm has very small amount of substitute feeding and good net profit per DSE. It also has a sustainable dry matter ground cover to carry through the dry periods.

This farm also has high utilization, or % of potential stocking rate. An analogy of this is a motel occupancy rate of 59%.

The second graph show the farm [ motel] has an occupancy rate of 25%]
