Getting the Most Out of Your Pastures

Wednesday, January 11, 6:00 pm until 7:30 pm
Various locations throughout central NY

Three-part series on understanding the complexities of the simple practice of grazing livestock of any kind. Organized by Cornell’s SCNY Regional Dairy Team. Graziers of all types of livestock are invited to these discussion-based meetings. At our first meeting we will share a pot of soup while watching a presentation on how the grazing animal’s rumen works. Discussions will follow on member’s grazing operations; their strengths and weaknesses. This will help set up topics for future meetings. These meetings are free to attend. Donations of cash or soup ingredients would be appreciated.

Dates and locations for these meetings are:

  • 1/11, 1/25, 2/1 - 4-H Building at Chemung Co. Fairgrounds, 170 Fairview Rd, Horseheads;
  • 1/12, 1/26, and 2/2 - Broome CCE Offices, 840 Upper Front St #2, Binghamton;
  • 1/17, 2/21, and 3/21 - Tompkins CCE Office, 615 Willow Ave, Ithaca;
  • 1/18, 2/15, and 3/15 - Cortland CCE Office, 60 Central Ave. Cortland; 2/14, 2/28, and 3/14 - Masonic Lodge, 159 Main Street, Moravia.

The three-part winter series will be facilitated by Fay Benson with the South-Central NY Dairy Team. Fay has collected numerous resources, both recorded and printed during his twenty years as a dairy and custom grazier as well as his twenty years with Cornell Cooperative Extension. Discussion groups are a great way to gain and share knowledge. Please register at this link or calling 607-391-2669 and leaving a message of which meeting you want to attend.
