Management Intensive Grazing for the Diversified Farm

Sunday, May 5, 2019 (All day)

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 diversified farm, using poultry, horses, cows, sheep, goats and/or pigs. Participants will be introduced to fencing & water system designs, and movable structures for hogs, poultry, and small ruminants, and will learn how to determine daily feed needs of various types of livestock.

This class is also appropriate if you have only one type of livestock and want to manage your pastures well.
