Event Details

 

Do you have enough pasture to last through the summer slump?  How do you manage when and how to transition to stored feed?  Does that feed last all winter, and how will affect next year’s grazing decisions? 

Whether wet or dry, small or large, the need for quality, consistent, nutritious forage is a must for any farm to remain viable in the long term. 

Join Troy Bishopp, coordinator of a SARE multi-state holistic planned grazing project, and Willie Gibson, dairy and livestock specialist with NOFA-VT as they engage in planning exercises and discussion with Jasper Hill farm manager Brian Trudell.  Jasper Hill is an award-winning farmstead cheese company and commercial cheese cave.  The farm is challenged by managing quality pastures, maintaining milk components, infrastructure limitations.  In this transitional year, Brian welcomes the opportunity to evaluate different options, and will lead a farm tour looking at recently installed improvements.
