Milwaukee River Basin Grazing Seminar, March 25

March 11, 2014 | 0 comments

KEWASKUM

The Milwaukee River Basin Grazing Network is hosting a Grazing Seminar at The Ironwood Restaurant on Tuesday, March 25. This seminar will serve as an educational kick off to the 2014 grazing season in the Milwaukee River Basin.

The seminar gets underway at 5:15 p.m. with registration.

Next, Kirsten Jurcek, Town & Country RC&D, will be discussing the critical aspects of successful grass-fed operations including: the benefits of managed grazing, soil organic matter and its importance in pasture production, fencing and watering, pasture seed selection, and pasture stocking rated for various species. She is the grazing education specialist for Town & Country RC&D and manages a cow/calf herd on 146 acres of rotationally grazed pasture at their farm in Jefferson,

Dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m.

On the agenda following dinner is a talk on Grazing Start up Costs & Economics of Corn vs. Pasture Production, featuring Paul Dietmann, Badgerland Financial Services. Over the past five years or so, the industry has seen an increase in grazing interest but they've also seen some managed grazing land converted to row crop production because it seemed to make more economic sense to grow corn instead of grass.

Dietmann will walk through some projected 2014 enterprise budgets and compare the economics of growing corn vs. quality pasture. He will also explore the start up costs of a grazing operation and the potential rate of return on an investment in pasture improvements.

Dietmann is the emerging markets specialist with Badgerland Financial, a member-owned rural lending cooperative and Farm Credit System institution serving southern Wisconsin. He is the former director of the Wisconsin Farm Center, which is the farmers' assistance program in the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) and in 2010, served as Wisconsin's Deputy Secretary of Agriculture.

Over the course of his career, Dietmann has worked with scores of farm families, helping them develop and analyze their financial plans. He is co-author of the book Fearless Farm Finances: Farm Financial Management Demystified.

Registration fee is $25 and the deadline is March 16.

Checks can be payable to: Town & Country RC&D, mail to Kirsten Jurcek, T&CRCD, N2437 Brattset Lane, Jefferson, WI 53549.
