Management-Intensive Grazing for the Small Diversified Farm
When: Sunday, May 15th from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Where: Earthwise Farm and Forest, 341 Macintosh Hill Rd, Bethel, VT
Management Intensive Grazing, also known as ‘Rational Grazing’, is a form of grazing management that can improve pasture forage yields, improve feed quality, increase plant species diversity, improve livestock performance, build organic matter & soil nutrient levels, and increase the biological life in your soil. By taking weather, biology, ecology, livestock management, and technology (ie electric fencing, water systems) into consideration you can make your grazing system a success on your farm. This class will provide instruction for setting up a successful grazing system on a small, diversified farm, using poultry, horses, cows, sheep, goats and/or pigs. Participants will learn how to set up a grazing system to complement their animal numbers (or anticipated animal numbers).
Cost: $70 per person or two people for $130 (BYO Lunch)
