Online Via Zoom


Contact: Kable Thurlow

Michigan State University (MSU) Extension and AgBioResearch are partnering with the Washtenaw County Conservation District and Baseline Farm in Dexter, Mich. for a virtual field day on grazing on Wednesday, October 14 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. The online webinar will focus on grazing management, soil health and environmental issues.

Beef producers in Michigan are encouraged to attend this online event to learn more about the ins and outs of practicing a grazing rotation.

“The goal of the event is to educate producers interested in transitioning to a grazing system and to further the knowledge of those already implementing a grazing system,” said Nick Machinski, Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP) technician for the Washtenaw County Conservation District.

Topics and presenters include:

“This event will cover a wide range of topics related to grazing management,” said Machinksi. “It will also provide opportunities and resources that will help assist those interested in transitioning to a grazing system or for those who want to fine tune their current grazing system.”

Thurlow is eager to partner with Baseline Farm to share this valuable information with Michigan’s beef producers. "This three-way partnership will allow us to reach more people that want to deepen their knowledge of grazing practices. The topics that each of us are covering will be valuable to the novice and advanced graziers.”
