BF 231: Grazing Management Online Course
November 9, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - December 14, 2016 @ 7:00 pm$250
Grazing is more than simply turning livestock out onto a green “warehouse”and hoping for the best. With sound grazing management, you can reduce your workload, keep your animals happier and healthier, and improve the overall productivity and profitability of your farm. Well-managed grazing systems also provide greater environmental benefits and enhance habitat for many wildlife species.
In this online course, you’ll learn the key concepts of successful grazing operations that can be adapted and successfully implemented on your own farm. The course focus will be on grazing ruminant livestock, but most of the information will be relevant to non-ruminant animals as well.
Join Instructor Brett Chedzoy, Senior forestry and agriculture educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County. Brett and his family also own and operate Angus Glen Farms, LLC in Watkins Glen, NY – a 400- acre grazing operation that raises grass-fed beef.
November 9 – December 14, with webinars each Wednesday evening from 7:00 – 8:30pm Eastern time.
