The Art and Science of Grazing workshop at the NOFA VT Winter Conference

The Art and Science of Grazing

While researching her next book, Sarah visited many farms in the US and Europe.  This workshop will look at how the core principals of good grazing management–including careful planning, observation and monitoring–are being applied in very unique ways on different farms in different climates and regions using creative application of grazing system design, infrastructure, stocking densities, and plant species selection.  We will discuss how best to care for the pasture plants and soils, while also maximizing pasture dry matter intake for herd or flock, to allow improved animal performance and well-being, and steady improvements in pasture quality and productivity.
