At this pasture walk, we’ll discuss how cows can not only survive, but thrive on grass-based diets. You’ll learn about the qualities of different forages, and how each of them contribute to cow health.
The pasture walk will be led by Dr. Sylvia Abel-Caines, the staff ruminant nutritionist for Organic Valley/CROPP Cooperative, and farmer John Meglich from Little Crick Farm, who has been practicing rotational grazing since the 1990s and managing a 100-percent grass-fed herd since 2005.
John frequently experiments with different perennial and annual forages in his pastures, working to optimize his herd’s performance. Weather permitting, attendees will have an opportunity to tour John’s 2018 forage trial plots, planted in conjunction with King’s Agriseeds.
Little Crick Farm is a year-round, certified-organic dairy, managing approximately 70 cows on 200 acres of pasture.
