Learn how to manage healthy pastures for maximum nutrition.
If you graze livestock, you know that a good grazing plan is paramount to the health of your animals and land, and ultimately to the success of your farm. Join us Thursday, June 22, 2017, 6:30pm – 9:00pm for a Twilight Pasture Walk near Duvall. We’ll visit two 100% grass-fed livestock farms, one raising beef, and another raising sheep for both meat and wool.
You’ll learn how to judge poor quality vs. healthy pasture, define a grazing plan based on your goals, how plant growth and grazing time affects rotation, how to create an individual system including sizing and timing, forage plants used as tools and their properties, along with the basics of maintaining a healthy pasture-based system. In addition, we will be talking about and practicing good biosecurity protocols as part of the pasture walk.
Cost is $25 per farm (up to four in one vehicle) or $15 per person. Exact location address will be sent upon registration. For more information and to register online see TwilightPastureWalk.eventbrite.com. For more information, contact Kate Ryan, email@example.com, (425) 357-6024.
