Summer 2021 Dairy Grazing Pasture Walk Series

Wednesday, August 18, 12:00 pm until 2:00 pm
Troyer Farm, Candor (Tioga County), NY

Troyer Farm with Upper Susquehanna Coalition Grazing Management Specialist and grass farmer Troy Bishopp, “The Grass Whisperer”. Isaac Troyer operates a 40-cow organic grazing dairy. He gained experience dairying with his father, and recently relocated his herd to a new farm in Candor, NY. This summer is his second grazing season at the new location. Troy will discuss how he uses his grazing chart to proactively manage for expected and unexpected events during the grazing season and give a snapshot of how the grazing season is going. Expect some lingering grazing observations in the pasture, stockpiling strategies, and learning how the Troyer family is using pastures to achieve their goals. Registration link: https://scnydfc.cce.cornell.edu/event.php?id=1630. Join the South Central NY Dairy and Field Crops Team for a series of pasture walks hosted by dairy farms throughout our region. Learn strategies for managing dairy cattle on pasture from experienced graziers and grazing educators. Be prepared for walking and standing outdoors.
