Farm Tour: Water Systems

  • Friday, June 22, 2018, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the Progressive Ulster Graziers (PUGs) Farm Tour.  This is a free event, open to the public.  The location is a farm in Hudson, NY - specific address will be sent to attendees.  

PUGs is a group of local graziers which meet every other month to review techniques and procedures pertaining to progressive grazing practices.

In this installment of PUGs, we will tour a local cattle farm, and get a look at the ways that these folks are able to maximize their use and stewardship of perennial pastures to boost animal weight gain and improve health. 

We will focus on the planning, development and implementation of livestock water systems for rotating livestock.  We will also discuss how rotating pastures can improve the diversity and vigor of your pastures and animals.

Space is limited.  Pre-registration is required by June 20:  Contact Jason at 518-567-4506 or email jbd222@cornell.edu.  Give your name, phone # and email for the registration list.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County provides equal program and employment opportunities. Please contact the program office at 845-340-3990 if you have any special needs.
