Pasture Walk at Heaven Scent Farm

Friday, October 29th, 1pm - 3pm

4735 Turnpike Road, Bath, NY 14810


Join Fay Benson, former dairyman and current Cornell Small Dairy Support Specialist; Katelyn Walley-Stoll, Farm Business Management Specialist; and Amy Barkley, Livestock and Beginning Farm Specialist, as they walk with the Stewart Family around their pastured dairy operation to learn about pasture compaction, late fall pasture management, transitioning from pasture to winter feeds, pasture economics, and winter cattle welfare considerations.

Jerry Stewart, his wife Amy, and their two children operate their small dairy farm in Bath NY. They have 30 Jerseys in their milking herd, which are seasonally grazed. For over 13 years, Jerry has been working through his mineral company, Balanced Biological Solutions LLC, to help other farmers build their soils and become more profitable. Jerry also heads the sales and marketing division at Sweet Acres Creamery.

Light refreshments will be provided. We plan to be standing or walking for most of the time, so please bring a folding a chair if you'd like one.

This event is free of charge, but your pre-registration will help us get accurate numbers for hand-outs and refreshments.
