Wisconsin Farmers Union will be partnering with regional RC&Ds and their grazing networks this spring to hold a series of workshops for dairy farmers who want to learn about the financial and managerial benefits grazing can provide. The sessions are targeted at both farmers who are not presently using managed grazing and current dairy grazers who want to improve their management skills and share ideas. Each meeting will also have a separate track for area farm agency and conservation staff to learn effective ways to promote grazing to farmers. This portion of the programing is funded by GrassWorks with support from a North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education grant. Participants from both workshops will join in a panel discussion with local dairy graziers to close the day.
Registration is at 10am for those attending the agency/staff track or 10:30am for the farmer track.
The day will wrap up at 2:30pm.
