Mechanics of Grazing

This workshop is designed for graziers that have a basic understanding of management-intensive grazing. It will help you take plans from “paper” and put them into “practice”.

The workshop will illustrate examples of fencing and watering, how to determine paddock size and layout, forage characteristics, and stocking density.

Cost-share programs that are available to graziers will be discussed.

Ken Nimrick, our host, will share how his grazing operation developed, changes he has made, and lessons learned. He currently has about 400 acres of pasture, 200 beef cows, and over 10 year of experience with managed grazing.

University of Illinois Extension specialists and educators plus NRCS specialists will lead the discussion and demonstrations.

The workshop will start at the Henderson County Fairgrounds in Stronghurst. The registration fee includes handout material, refreshments, and lunch.

Register now. Dress for the weather, as the workshop will be held rain or shine.
