COST: $25

Join grazier, Troy Bishopp, in a four season grazing strategy process using grazing charts to predict changes in recoveryperiods and develop management scenarios to meet your goals and reduce stress in your grazing plan. Topics covered include: Starting the grazing season and managing the flush of grass, how to graze taller grasses and plan for time off, and preparing for stockpiling. Come learn how Troy creates a flexible strategy for his own farm. Then walk the pastures with Troy and Stone Barns Farm Director Jack Algiere in the afternoon to observe the grazing plan at work. Please come with your own grazing plan on hand so participants can engage in a conversation from all angles.
