Workshops on Grazing as a Sustainable Farming Practice to be held in Eastern Wisconsin

By CPTPComm | 3:41 PM, 02/23/2018

GracierLand RC&D is teaming up with Grassworks to enhance staff knowledge on effective ways to promote grazing to farmers and to develop county grazing programs. They have assembled a statewide project education team including RC&D grazing coordinators, private industry financial analysists, and representatives from NRCS, UW Extension and County Land Conservation Departments and will be hosting workshops in Eastern Wisconsin.

The workshops will be followed by four in-depth on-farm trainings throughout the grazing season. Participants will experience a season in grazing through these repeated farm visits. There will be 3 farm host locations (each hosting the four events) in Eastern WI including: Saxon Farm, Manitowoc County; Brattset Family Farm, Jefferson County and a farm to be confirmed in the Waupun/Fond Du Lac region.
