This year the spring grazing school will be held on May 17-18, 2016 at Woodford County Extension office and the Oran C. Little Research Center in Versailles, KY. This two-day program will include hands-on exercises, such as building temporary paddocks and watering systems, assessing pasture production, and designing your own grazing systems. Classroom sessions include a variety of topics regarding forages, animal management, and grazing systems. Emphasis will be on spring and summer grazing management for ruminant species.
Anyone interested in this program may apply, but a limited number of applicants will be accepted, so apply early. Past participants have included new farmers to experienced grazers and all have gained new information and practical skills to implement on their operations. All grazing school participants have indicated that attending this program motivated them to make changes to their grazing systems to improve their operations and increase production.
