Event description

Description

Ready to learn about the grazing basics for goats and sheep? Understanding the principles of grazing, deciding how to prioritize land and animal management, and special challenges with small ruminants are just some of the tools that Jenn Colby, UVM Pasture Program Coordinator, employs to help farmers learn from scratch or transition from less grazing-intensive systems.

Management Intensive Grazing, also known as ‘Rational Grazing’, is a form of grazing management that can improve pasture forage yields, feed quality, plant species diversity, livestock health & performance, build organic matter, and increase the biological life in your soil. By taking weather, biology, ecology and technology (ie electric fencing, water systems) into consideration you can make your grazing system a success on your farm.

Join Jenn for a pasture walk and interactive grazing talk focused on building a grazing system for the beginning farmer, homesteader or transitioning farm systems with goats, sheep or multi-species groups. Come with your questions, ideas, and struggles and we will figure this out together as we tour the goat dairy at Ice House Farm.

To request a disability- related accommodation to participate in the program please contact Jenn Colby, Jennifer.Colby@uvm.edu or 802-535-7606, so we may assist you.

Registration is appreciated, it will help us gauge the crowd size.
