Preventing Grazing Pitfalls:  Learning from our livestock and pastures (Dundalk August 1st, evening)

Grass based organic farmers know the importance of pasture as the primary feed source for their cattle. But part of managing pastures well is honing our observation skills to assess what the plants and animals are telling us about their health. In this workshop, we will review the key grazing principles that help your cattle maximize dry matter intake from pastures and avoid potential problems. We will also learn how to observe the livestock, their manure, and pasture plants to determine the health of your pasture management.
