The Grazier’s Tool Box part 2

Monday, November 26, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM   

This session is a continuation from Part 1. In the afternoon we will look at pasture from the livestock perspective, learning techniques to meet their nutritional needs, maximize pasture dry matter intake, provide low-stress handling, provide the correct supplemental feeds and minerals, and when shade or shelter should be planned into the grazing.  We will also spend time discussing techniques to monitor and assess the health of the pasture ecosystem, and the performance and well-being of the livestock.
