Description

Florida Forest Stewardship Silvopasture Tour
George C. Owens Farm
Washington County, FL
Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Meet at the Washington County Extension Agricultural Center at 9:00 AM CT
Lunch will be served at the Ag Center after the tour.

George C. Owens Farm is one of the most renowned silvopasture operations in the Southeastern U.S. Silvopasture combines trees with forage and livestock production. The trees are managed for high-value saw logs and, at the same time, provide shade, shelter and forage for livestock. This system reduces livestock stress and increases forage production. Properly managed silvopasture can be more productive, and often more profitable, than either timber or pasture management alone. Come see firsthand how this operation works. Wear appropriate clothing for the field.

We will meet at the Washington County Extension Ag Center and travel to the property from there.
