Whether you own sheep, cattle or horses, pasture management is an important part of raising farm animals. To get the most out of your pastures, they need to be maintained properly. The Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), Lake Erie College, the Geauga County Ohio State University Extension, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Geauga County Farm Bureau invite you to a unique opportunity to learn more about pasture and hay management with Bob Hendershot, Ohio Department of Agriculture Grazing Specialist, and Les Ober, OSU Extension Geauga County Program Coordinator.
Gain ideas and inspiration from Chander Hill Farm, a truly unique operation that promotes sustainably and humanely raised Heritage Livestock. Livestock grazing will be the focus of this pasture walk, including the process of developing and managing an intensive grazing system. Conservation practices installed with Natural Resources Conservation Service will also be showcased.
The program is free of charge but registration is required by June 4. For more information, to register or to request any special accommodations, please contact Geauga SWCD at 440-834-1122 or [email protected].
