Improved Grazing and Pasture Management

Join us for a workshop on pasture management featuring grazing consultant Sarah Flack. Topics will include: getting the most from your pasture through informed grazing decisions, how to increase the amount of dry matter your herd gets from pasture to cut feed costs, and how to calculate dry matter intake. We’ll also cover pasture record keeping systems for organic farms. There will also be information on troubleshooting electric fence issues, balancing rations with pasture and preventing parasite problems in young stock. Presented in collaboration with the Center for Sustainable Agriculture’s Pasture Program and the Vermont Grass Farmers Association.
