Pasture and Grazing Management Workshop
Special speakers Doug Peterson and Allan Williams will be speaking at Madison Community Center on August 29th from 9 am to 4 pm.
Two renowned soil health specialists, Allen Williams and Doug Peterson, will offer tips for livestock producers based upon their years of working with grazing management, says Darren Hoffman, NRCS resource conservationist in Monroe County.
These discussions will lead to better soil health, improved profits and more flexibility in livestock grazing systems, says Hoffman.
Allen Williams, a sixth generation farmer and beef consultant, pioneered many of the early adaptive grazing protocols and forage finishing techniques used today. He serves as a consultant to farmers and ranchers in the United States, Canada, Mexico and South America on operations with a few acres up to 1 million acres. He and his colleagues specialize in whole farm and ranch planning. He focuses on multiple enterprise/revenue stream opportunities to improve profits. He is co-author of “Before You Have a Cow.”
Doug Peterson serves as a NRCS regional soil health specialist in Missouri and Iowa. He teaches NRCS staff and producers about soil health management. A native of Newtown in northern Missouri, he operates a 250- head cow/calf and contract grazing operation with his father. They use adaptive multi-paddock grazing and holistic high density grazing to improve soil health and eliminate the need for most purchased fertilizer.
