Southwest New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Program

Join Cornell Cooperative Extension and Jerry Stewart of Heaven Scent Farm to learn about how soil health impacts pasture. We will have a tour of Jerry's small dairy and pastures, perform calculations on forage density, learn how to interpret forage and soil test results and use those results to help understand weed management, and learn about how soil health impacts pasture characteristics through the various soil health demonstrations. The activities will have a hands-on focus and provide you with tools that you can take back to your farm. All are welcome, regardless of what livestock you raise!

The workshop will be held on Thursday, July 13th from 12pm - 3pm at Heaven Scent Farm in Bath, NY. A light lunch will be provided. We plan to be standing or walking for most of the time, so please bring a folding chair if you'd like one.

This event is free of charge thanks to the generous support from the National Grazing Lands Coalition, but your pre-registration will help us get accurate numbers for handouts and lunch. Please RSVP by contacting Kelly at 585-268-7644 or 

This event is one in a series hosted by CCE Allegany; CCE Chautauqua; CCE Livingston; CCE NYNW Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Team; & CCE SWNY Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Team.

A little bit about Heaven Scent Farm: 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 15 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.
