La méthode « fil avant et fil arrière  » qui y est appliquée (lire en encadré) consiste en outre à faire progresser les animaux dans la pâture de manière régulière, pour éviter un surpâturage et un piétinement excessif qui abîmeraient la prairie. « Les animaux restent un à deux jours dans leur « cellule de pâturage  », puis passent à une autre. Cette méthode est issue d’études réalisées au siècle dernier par un chercheur et ingénieur agronome français, André Voisin. Celui-ci avait constaté que la pousse de l’herbe était défavorisée dès lors que les animaux la coupaient à plusieurs reprises, et que la productivité était au contraire améliorée par un pâturage bref, qui laissait ensuite à l’herbe le temps de repousser », explique A. Delpech. Autre point d’importance sur lequel s’appuie le système néo-zélandais : l’introduction de légumineuses dans les prairies (trèfle blanc essentiellement), source de protéines indispensables pour s’affranchir des tourteaux de soja. Fort de toutes ces données, A. Delpech, de retour sur son exploitation, étudie et expérimente la faisabilité de ces méthodes et les moyens de les transposer chez lui.
Beware of the Clover scam. If you have the option to use a different service do so before you regret it. I was singed up for them as a complementary (obligatory) package of my checking account. Their service is unreliable. My business had to start using PayPal (I’m not getting paid to mention them). Clover services was masked underneath the bank’s “Merchant Service”. Once their service proved useless I tried closing the account to find out there is a $500 early termination fee or a monthly fee that I need to pay until the 3 year contract ended. The contract went on as the back account forced me to maintain it. Two month before the 3 year contract ended they charge the $500 early termination fee. Now I’m stuck in their collection department which is efficient unlike their customer service.

Clover programmers are not familiar with restaurant business. I can tell because I’m a software developer and since I got my restaurant and got Clover, I have experienced many issues with the way they configured the processes. I haven’t switched yet because of the very tight contract. PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, DO NOT GET ANY POS SYSTEM WITH LEASE CONTRACT. PAY IT IN FULL IF POSSIBLE AND DO NOT LET THEM NAIL YOU WITH THEIR LEASE CONTRACT.
Their customer service SUCKS!!!!!!! I have been put on hold for up to 30 minutes to have them get on the line and tell me I need to call a different number! Yes they can NEVER find your merchant ID number it's like you don't even exist. We are not a restaurant, and we have had to put our inventory in three different times! The little barcode scanner on the screen constantly stops working and when I tried to purchase a handheld barcode scanner just yesterday I spent the entire day on the phone, getting transferred, being put on hold, told I have to call different numbers and was finally told that they would email me the paperwork to get a scanner, and this is the best part.........they can't send the scanner until they receive my check BECAUSE THEY DONT TAKE CREDIT CARDS! What a ridiculous rinky dink operation! Run far far away from this system!
