Raising Cattle from the Ground Up-Workshop: Field Day with Dr. Allen Williams
October 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - October 19, 2017 @ 4:00 pm
The purpose of this workshop and field day is to learn about raising pasture-based livestock starting with the soil through to marketing. During the workshop, we will discuss the key principals of soil health, rotational grazing to revitalize the soil and increase animal gain, the tools we need to graze native pasture as well as cover crops, marketing, and creating a vibrant local food economy. Allen Williams is a 6th generation farmer and former professor at Mississippi State, as well as a pioneer in the pasture-based livestock industry. He specializes in animal performance and genetics, soil health, marketing, and more. He has consulted with more than 4,000 farmers and ranchers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and South America.
