Bringing Marginal Ground Back Into Productive Grazing

May 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us for a pasture walk that focuses on bringing marginal ground into productive grazing rotations for cows.

We’ll take a look at one example of this practice with Master Grazier Brian Moyer. He’ll explain how he no-till drills annual forage crops into cattle exercise lots to produce forage for grazing, while he mitigates the impact on heavy-use areas to revitalize soil.

You’ll also learn how Journeyman Dairy Grazier Joseph Moyer transformed edge habitats on the farm, such as woodland areas once overgrown with weeds, into productive grazing paddocks through regular grazing rotations and strategic mowing.
