Getting the Most Out of Your Pastures

This presentation is developed to create an understanding of the complexities in simple practices of grazing livestock of any kind. Organized by Cornell’s SCNY Regional Dairy Team. Dates and locations for these meetings are:

4-H Building at Chemung Co. Fairgrounds, 170 Fairview Rd, Horseheads–

April 15th, 2023 at 10am - 11:30 AM

Tompkins CCE Office, 615 Willow Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850

January 17th February 21st, and March 21st, all meetings are 6:00 – 7:30 PM

Graziers of all types of livestock are invited to these discussion-based meetings. Grazing livestock can be a low-cost way to make use of perennial grasses to produce food and fiber for the family or to sell. What many have found is that to be profitable, productive, and fun the grazier needs to understand the interactions of: nutrition, plant growth, nutrient cycling, soil health, record keeping, as well as other pieces that success is made up of.

This presentation will be facilitated by Fay Benson with the South-Central NY Dairy Team. Fay has collected numerous resources, both recorded and printed during his twenty years as a dairy and custom grazier as well as his twenty years with Cornell Cooperative Extension. Discussion groups are a great way to gain and share knowledge. Please register by calling 607-734-4453 ext. 227 and leave a message of interest in attending the event.
