Sheep & Goat - Pasture Management - Lewistown - Pekin

Feed accounts for more than 60% of the cost of raising sheep and goats. Management Tips for Sheep & Goat Pastures will take a look at ways to extend the grazing season and management tools to increase the quality, quantity and utilization of forages produced on the farm. By increasing the grazing days we can reduce purchased and stored feed costs.

Getting More from Your Grass & Forage will discuss fertility levels, adding legumes and other means of improving forage stands, quality and productivity helping to improve the yields of cool-season grasses.

Fencing to Control Sheep and Goats & Reduce Predation will examine fencing systems and focus on electric fencing to maintain animal control, improve grazing management and reduce predator losses.
