August 11, 2020

60 Days From Your Fall Feeding Plan - Webinar

Are you ready to feed grass this fall? This webinar, held Tuesday, August 11th from 7:00pm - 8:00pm will discuss the realities of stockpiling perennial pastures for the 2020 fall and winter grazing seasons. 

It's a practical venture into the decision-making and pasture management strategies to get more grazing days and offset feeding costs without sacrificing animal performance. Will the plan match reality? Only 60 days to find out. This installment's speaker is Troy Bishopp, aka, The Grass Whisperer, who is a proactive grazier of 35 years and a grazing professional at the Madison County Soil & Water Conservation District in NY. 

This webinar is co-organized and co-sponsored by Vermont Grass Farmers and The Livestock Institute. This is the fourth webinar in a six-part webinar series that will cover several strategies for grazing season extension and alternative forage production. The series is a collaboration among UMass Extension, UVM Extension, & UMaine Extension, and is supported in part by a Northeast SARE Research and Education Grant with organization and administration supported by the Livestock Institute of Southern New England with the support of the Cedar Tree Foundation. For any questions about the series, please contact Sam Corcoran at sglazecorcor@umass.edu.
