Pasture Walk

The Rutland Area Shepherds are sponsoring a Pasture Walk on Saturday, August 13.

Kimberly Hagen, UVM Grazing Specialist, will be leading the tour. We will be visiting several farms and discussing small ruminant pasture management.  For information and location call Sue at 446-2830 or info@vermontshepherds.com.

 

Various types of pasture environments will be explored:  silvopastures, converting woodland to pasture, mature pasture management, and adapting large ruminant pastures to small ruminants.

 

The cost is $10 which includes lunch.  Be prepared to be outside and walk over various types of terrain.
