Part 3: The Graziers’ Toolbox - Strategies for Pasture Improvement
Tuesday, March 3, 2020

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (Eastern Time)
Show in My Timezone
Join FACT and grazing expert Sarah Flack for part 3 of a 3-part series on strategies for pasture management. This session will discuss tools and strategies for pasture improvement.

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.
