Pasture Management and Youngstock
Monday, August 6, 2018 - 10:30am to 2:30pm
Ever think about milking your cows just once a day instead of twice a day? This practice has pros and cons depending on each farms unique situation. Shifting to once a day milking also takes careful planning to make it work well. Join farmer and veterinarian Brian Howlett, UVM Agronomist Heather Darby and grazing consultant Sarah Flack on a tour of Brian’s farm, Ottercrest Dairy. We will take a look at his pasture systems and rotational grazing management. Brian will share strategies for parasite prevention in youngstock on pasture and his experience with milking one time a day.
