Grazing 101

Whether you are new to the world of livestock or have been grazing animals for years, it seems there are always questions to ask and ways to do things better. If you have livestock or plan to start a small operation soon, make plans to attend a webinar that will address some of those questions you might have. Grazing Management for Beginners (Grazing 101) is an opportunity to learn from the ground up, the basic management of beginning and maintaining a solid stand of forage for your livestock operation. This program will be Tuesday, June 8, 2021, beginning at 7 p.m. EST. It will be offered online through Zoom. The program is free but you MUST register online at:  https://go.ncsu.edu/grazing.

Workshop Description

During this free virtual workshop, participants will learn management practices like proper soil sampling, grazing management (stocking rates, grazing heights, etc.), rotational grazing, and fescue management. All livestock producers are welcome to participate no matter your experience level. Sometimes it is good to refresh some of these practices and see if you can improve on what you are doing. For more information, contact the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Davie County Center at 336-753-6100.
