2018 Advanced Grazing School
This intensive, 1-day school is geared for producers who are backgrounding calves or raising replacements on pasture, as well as pasture-based dairy and finishing operations. The school will teach participants how to create and meet realistic animal performance goals on a pasture-based diet. It will go into an in-depth look at performance-enhancing forage systems including: cool – and warm-season annual pasture, native warm-season pasture, alfalfa based systems, and improved cool-season perennial pasture. Participants will also learn about strategic supplementation of pasture using fiber-based byproducts, advanced plant physiology, and improved variety selection. Register today to take your grazing management to the next level! Space is limited to 30!
