Part 2: Grazing Management From the Livestock Perspective
Tuesday, February 18, 2020

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (Eastern Time)
Show in My Timezone
Join FACT and grazing expert Sarah Flack for part 2 of a 3-part series on pasture management strategies. This session will focus on the livestock perspective.

What are the nutritional and behavioral needs of cows, sheep and goats on pasture?  How can we use that knowledge to design grazing systems which make it easier to maximize pasture intake by the herd or flock?  This session will include information on how to measure available dry matter in the pasture, and calculate acreage needs for the herd or flock.  We will look at how different pre-grazing heights and post grazing residuals change the nutritional quality of what livestock are able to graze, and how that changes their ability to meet their intake requirements. 

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.
