Pasture Management Workshop

September 13, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Waseda Farms rotationally grazes beef cattle, poultry and pork on more than four hundred acres of certified organic farm land in Baileys Harbor, WI. They work hard to continually improve their soils while maximizing for-age quality & quantity and livestock health. They plant spring and fall cover crops to extend their grazing season & build their soils.

This workshop will be a great opportunity to see first hand how this Chris Schuh, farm manager, achieves success while working with many experts. Whether you are a beginning or experienced grazier you’ll be sure to go home with knowledge that will better your farm! There will be opportunity for questions, networking with existing graziers, and good conversation.
