Date: September 21, 2017 - September 22, 2017
Location: 10461 North 40th Street Hickory Corners Michigan, 49060

Starting at 8 a.m. on Thursday & concluding at 4 p.m. on Friday

Grazing School attendees can expect to learn a variety of tools and subsequently choose to integrate the methods that are most suitable for their particular grazing system. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to work with MSU experts to collectively graze a group of MSU livestock during the course of the Grazing School.

Management is the key to profitable grazing. Properly managed grazing systems have a good design as a basis, but also include continual adjustments to management based on environmental factors, stock type, density and pasture measurements. Integrating all of this information into a grazing system can be difficult to understand and implement so join us for grazing school to talk about and experience grazing methods.
