Organic Pasture Rule Workshops

NOFA VT, with support from Horizon Organic Dairy and Organic Valley, is organizing four workshops on what the new pasture rule means for organic livestock farms in Vermont. Sarah Flack will lead a morning discussion about how to calculate your herd’s dry matter intake from pasture. We will also discuss methods for extending your grazing season and maximizing your animals’ dry matter intake from pasture. This can cut your feed costs, AND ensure you are meeting the pasture rule! Nicole Dehne from VOF will lead an afternoon session on pasture record keeping. There will also be time for your questions about the rule.May 10th, May 12th, May 19th, May 19th
