Managed Grazing Certification
NRCS is conducting a two-day Managed Grazing Certification training where participants will learn the basic principles of pasture management and livestock production. Participants will become familiar with the Prescribed/Managed Grazing Standard in order to assist a producer in developing and implementing a Prescribed Grazing Plan. Topics which will be discussed include: conducting a pasture survey, identifying resource problems and concerns, designing alternative stocking methods and completing an animal/forage balance, paddock design, and grazing plan format.
There is no registration fee, lodging, or meals provided. If you are interested, please register with Brian Pillsbury by December 9 at Brian.Pillsbury@wi.usda.gov.
