Multispecies Grazing: Management Techniques & Animal Care [CRAFT]

July 11, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

Learn how to manage a multi-species grazing system, including implementing succession grazing techniques and caring for each animal species from start to finish, at Deep Roots Valley.

Deep Roots Valley directly markets its product to consumers and restaurants. Over the past seven years, owners and operators Will and Kelly Smith have worked to convert their fifth-generation family farm from a conventional crop operations to a multispecies grazing operation. They intensively graze approximately 60 head of beef cattle, pasture raise 2,000 laying hens, pasture 5,000 broilers, and finish 15 pigs on their 150-acre farm in Berks County.

Speaker information

Will and Kelly both worked in the restaurant industry before returning to Kelly’s family farm. From the start, Will and Kelly have aspired to revamp the farm to raise the healthiest food possible to feed their family and surrounding community.
