Planning for the right stocking rate – Workshop at the 2017 NODPA field days

I’ll be teaching a workshop in Truxton NY September 28th and 29th on strategies for making well-informed and financially sound decisions on major farm management changes, such as whether a robotic milking system fits into your farming and grazing system, and if your farm is suitable to convert to an all grass-based system. ¬†This session will include an overview of how to calculate the right number of cows for the current land base, depending on what management system and what level of pasture dry matter intake the farm is planning for. ¬†
