Preparing the pastures
The Oregon Pasture Network in Oregon City will hold "Grazing, Soils & Pastures: An Intensive 3-Day Workshop," beginning at 6 p.m. on June 13.
The workshop will run through June 15 and is a program of Friends of Family Farmers (FoFF) designed to support the growth of pasture-based agriculture in Oregon by providing networking, educational, and marketing support to livestock producers.
The OPN is partnering with Dr. Woody Lane of Lane Livestock Services to offer this special course.
Topics will include setting up a grazing system, when to move animals off pasture, identifying common forages, gauging the nutritional value of forages, reading soil tests, and much more.
This course is open to livestock owners and prospective livestock owners interested in raising animals on pasture and learning more about cutting edge grazing practices that can help improve environmental and animal health while increasing your bottom line.
