Grass-Fed Workshop and Pasture Walk: Lessons we can Learn fr

Thursday, September 13, 2018, 12:00 pm until 12:30 pm
Green Heron Growers, Sherman (Chautauqua County), NY

Joining us will be renowned pasture consultant Sarah Flack, Dr. Silvia Abel-Caines, Ruminant Nutritionist for Organic Valley/ CROPP, Steve Gabriel with the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute and Jonathan Zeiset, Zeiset Ag Consulting. This event will be an in-depth look at pasture forages and how to create diversity in your pasture while supplying your animals with the proper nutrition for increased weight gains in beef and increasing milk components in your milk. Our emphasis will be on building high quality, low cost forages, increasing the diversity in the forage selection and building the microbial population in your soils. We also plan to look at ways to improving your net income by utilizing all of your pasture resources including the use of “silvopasture” woodland grazing. The Heron facilities offer patrons the opportunity to camp in our spacious 300 plus acres of woodlands or open meadow camper friendly areas.
