Event Details



Step up your grazing skills this coming season! Come hear grazing consultant, Sarah Flack provide helpful tips to fine-tune your system. She’ll also discuss the most common grazing mistakes and how to avoid them. Farmer Guy Choiniere of Highgate, Vt will share his strategies for producing top quality forage, which allows him to maintain a 50-55 pound per cow production average on 6 pounds of grain per cow. Brent Beidler of Randolph Ctr, Vt will also be here to discuss his successes with annual crops such as millet, forage oats, and turnips to increase overall pasture productivity. Brent will also cover the importance of variable paddock sizes and how he maximizes forages to minimize grain feeding.
