Lessons we can Learn from Pasture
September 12, 2018 - September 13, 2018$70.00
Mark your calendar and plan to join us on Wednesday and Thursday, September 12 and 13th, 2018 at Green Heron Growers farm in Sherman, NY, for our Grass-fed Workshop and Pasture Walk sponsored by Agri-Dynamics and Kitchen Table Consultants. Joining us will be renowned pasture consultant Sarah Flack, Dr. Silvia Abel-Caines, Ruminant Nutritionist for Organic Valley/CROPP, Steve Gabriel with the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute and Jonathan Zeiset, Zeiset Ag
Consulting. This event will be an in-depth look at pasture forages and how to create diversity in your pasture while supplying your animals with the proper nutrition for increased weight gains in beef and increasing milk components in your milk. Our emphasis will be on building high quality, low cost forages, increasing the diversity in the forage selection and building the microbial population in your soils. We also plan to look at ways to improving your net income by utilizing all of your pasture resources including the use of “silvo-pasture” woodland grazing.
Our workshops will consists of a series of lectures, pasture walks and observations of pasture trials with microbial and mycorrhizae inoculation and forage diversity. While feeding the mind with information to improve your farm operation, you will also be fed farm raised organic foods prepared by on-farm Green Heron Growers kitchen staff. The Heron facilities offer patrons the opportunity to camp in our spacious 300 plus acres of woodlands or open meadow camper friendly areas.
