Michigan State University Extension will be conducting an Advanced Grazing School April 9, and 10, 2020, in the Eastern Upper Peninsula in hopes of attracting graziers from across the state. This workshop is for graziers that have multiple years of experience, use some system of “rotational grazing”, and want to further enhance the outcomes of their grazing efforts. The emphasis of this workshop will not be on the “right” thing to do, but on ideas and information a producer can use to further their grazing program. Therefore, it will be critical for each person to be prepared to look at their own operations and be ready to write a work plan for the next year and the next 5 years. Each person will be expected to share some of their ideas and participate in the discussion.
Renowned grazing expert, Ben Bartlett will be the featured presenter. MSU Extension Educators, Kable Thurlow and Frank Wardynski are organizing the activities and will share in teaching and leading group discussion. Also, MSU Extension Specialists Kim Cassida and Jason Rowntree will give presentations.
The goal of the workshop is to have each participant be exposed to some of the newest information on grazing and to leave with a workbook of action plans for their operation. This workshop wants to help you carve out the time, be exposed to new thinking, and most importantly, put a plan together to move your grazing program to a new level of performance. Additionally, this workshop will be the initial planning session for summer pasture walks at various locations across the state.
