Getting Started with Rotational Grazing

  • Friday, August 25, 2017, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Saturday, August 26, 2017, 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This is a 2-day hands-on clinic that will provide you with the practical skills to implement a rotational grazing system on your property.  Join CCEUC Livestock Educator, Jason Detzel, to explore the topic of rotational grazing and how you can utilize this tool to improve the efficiency of your operation and the overall health of your animals.

Rotational grazing can increase your profits by lowering your feed costs, improving your pasture swards, decreasing your on farm labor, producing healthier animals, and combatting parasites.

The clinic will be divided into 2 parts:

  • August 25:  Classroom portion of the clinic at CCE Ulster County (232 Plaza Road in Kingston)
  • August 26:  Farm visit at a participating farm (specific location to be announced after registration).

You’re not required to attend both the class and farm visit, and registration pays for both, but you must attend the class August 25 class to attend the August 26 farm visit.

Registration per person is $20 or just $10 for 2017 CCEUC Agriculture Program Enrolled members. Children 12 and under free with an adult. For more information on ag enrollment click here.
