Enhance grazing knowledge at workshop

Aug. 24, 2014 | 0 comments

Learn more about grazing at a grazing workshop and pasture walk set for Sept. 8-9.

Topics included at this even are Intensive Grazing Principles 101; Forage Study Groups; Grass-fed Meat and Milk (finishing on forage, feeding grain and economics of grass-fed); and Filling forage holes: forages when we really need them

The featured speaker, Woody Lane, is a nationally-known livestock nutritionist from Roseburg, OR. Lane owns and operates an independent consulting firm, Lane Livestock Services; teaches courses in forages and livestock nutrition to ranchers; and facilitates three forage study groups for ranchers in western Oregon.

Originally from New York, Woody earned his master's and doctorate degrees in livestock nutrition from Cornell University. He spent two years with the famous Allegheny Highlands Project in Elkins, WV, and in the 1980s was the Extension sheep and beef cattle specialist for the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He has published over 25 scientific, peer-reviewed research articles on sheep and cattle production.

The grazing workshop will be held Sept.8 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, 2740 W Mason St. in Green Bay, in the Executive Dining Room (Rm 128) in the Student Center Building (parking in Lot G).

Day two is the pasture walk, which will be held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 9 at Norsk Farm, 6366 Fredrickson Road, Lena.

A $15 fee each day includes lunch.

To preregister by Aug. 29 (for one or both days), contact mgc@glacierlandrcd.org or 920-680-6484.

The grazing workshop is sponsored by Glacierland RC&D, Byron Seeds and Organic Valley. More information is available at www.glacierlandrcd.org.
