  • Grazing Management - Improve Your Triple Bottom Line Through Better Grazing (Series)
    6:30pm - 8:00pm
    Webinar

    COST: $299 - A tiered pricing based on federal guidelines is available.


    Thurs Feb 27 - Apr 2, 2020, every Thurs evening from 6:30 - 8pm. Grazing is more than simply turning livestock out onto a green pasture and hoping for the best. With sound grazing management, you can reduce your workload, keep your animals happier and healthier, and improve the overall productivity and profitability of your farm. Well-managed grazing systems also provide greater environmental benefits and enhance habitat for many wildlife species.

    In this course, you’ll learn the key concepts of successful grazing operations that can be adapted and successfully implemented on your own farm. The course focus will be on grazing ruminant livestock, but most of the information will be relevant to non-ruminant animals as well.

  • Pasture Management w/ Sarah Flack - Graziers’ Toolbox (Part 3)
    12:00pm - 1:30pm
    Webinar

    COST: Free

    This final session will let us put together what we learned in the first two, and talk about how we can meet livestock needs while also using their grazing behavior to improve the pastures. How can we use higher or lower stocking densities, taller or shorter pre-grazing heights and decisions on how long to leave livestock in the paddock and how much to let them trample it, or how short to let them graze it as tools to improve pastures so we can avoid expensive inputs and reseeding? By better understanding, and using these “graziers tools” we can change the pasture plant species composition, pasture productivity & quality, soil health, and livestock performance.


    Sarah Flack, author of The Art and Science of Grazing, & Organic Dairy Production, is a nationally known speaker & consultant on grazing and organic livestock. She grew up on a Vermont family farm that used management-intensive grazing and mob stocking, later studying pasture management at the University of VT. Her approach as a consultant, writer & speaker is to take a practical approach to applying the science of grazing. Sarah has successfully helped many farmers create positive change in their pastures, soils, livestock, finances, & farm-family quality of life.

  • Livestock Compass - A Profit Management Tool for Producers
    12:00am - 12:00am
    Webinar

    COST: Free

    Knowing your cost of production makes it possible to set prices with confidence and allows a farmer to assess various livestock enterprises, different marketing channels, and actively manage their farm business for profit…a vital component of sustainability. The challenge on many farms is record keeping and having a system to compile those costs so that a producer is making sure to include all costs, including overhead, marketing, labor (including the farmer-owner’s labor) and production costs. Join this webinar to learn about Livestock Compass, a comprehensive Excel spreadsheet tool to help livestock producers measure profitability and identify ways to improve financial outcomes.

    After working with many growers on the development and use of Veggie Compass, a spreadsheet tool designed for diversified, fresh-market vegetable growers, the University of Wisconsin has developed a tool for livestock producers called the Livestock Compass. Presenters John Hendrickson and Jim Munsch will review the concept and function of this valuable new tool, demonstrating how it works to measure financial results for the totality of a livestock operation.
