Interested in learning more about rotational grazing? Did you hear about our two upcoming, in-person workshop events?

These events will consist of short presentations, followed by a practical activity.

Have you ever wondered just how big your paddocks have to be, or how often you have to move your livestock to have an impact on your pasture’s health and productivity? Not sure how you’d have to set up your watering system to make rotational grazing feasible? Exactly HOW do you calculate the amount of forage your herd needs on a daily basis, and how does seasonal variability affect your grazing plans? Maybe you want to move from a continuous grazing system to rotational grazing but aren’t sure how to go about it?

We are here to provide you with the tools you need to make these management decisions this season, and give you the opportunity to practice the paddock design process with the guidance of local experts

Perennia specialists, Katie Trottier, the ruminant livestock specialist, as well as Shane Wood, the forage specialist, along with local graziers, will be available to answer any questions you may have and discuss all things rotational grazing with you! Whether you are new to rotational grazing, are interested in trying it, or have been doing it for many years, there is always something to learn.

All are welcome, so come on out and join us.

The first event will be held February 7th, 2023 at the Waterville Fire Hall, 1415 County Home Rd, Cambridge, NS from 1:30 – 4:30 PM.
