Using A Grazing Chart To Accomplish What You Want and Limit Stress.

So you have a grazing plan, now make it come alive on the land.  Join veteran grazier, Troy Bishopp, in a real-life, meat and potatoes, four season grazing strategy process using a grazing chart to predict changes in recovery periods and see trouble brewing while developing management scenarios to meet your goals and reduce stress.  Topics to include:  Starting the season, managing the flush, dealing with weather extremes, infrastructure concerns, grazing taller, planning for time off, stockpiling, winter grazing, bale grazing and finding ways to save money at every decision.

Troy will play show and tell from his own farm experience on how adopting a flexible strategy and being a proactive manager has pushed his grazing days to 260 in the snow belt of upstate NY.  He will show real grazing examples of how he wrecked and how livestock and nature taught him the right profitable approach to implementing a consistent grazing season.  Beware, reality can be a hard pill to swallow.

Participants please review your own grazing plan and know animal needs and goals you have for your farm so we can have a comprehensive conversation from all angles in developing a grazing chart that really works.
