Friday Session I

Learn how to improve pastures and livestock nutrition using the basic “tools” of stocking rates and densities. We’ll discuss trampling, plant regrowth needs, and how pre-grazing heights and the amount of residual pasture left behind impacts the animals, soils and plants. Leave with your toolkit full of “grazier’s tools” to improve pasture productivity and quality, soil health, and overall livestock performance.

Sarah Flack is the author of The Art and Science of Grazing, and Organic Dairy Production and known for her practical approach to the science of grazing. She grew up on a Vermont family farm that used management-intensive grazing and mob stocking.
