On Thursday, April 7, 2022, CCE Oswego hosted a virtual workshop that gave an introduction to multi-paddock rotational grazing for livestock farmers. Registrants discovered the many benefits of rotational grazing and learned some of the practical skills and methods needed to implement it on their farm.
Guest speakers were grazing experts, Brett Chedzoy from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County, and Troy Bishopp from Madison County Soil and Water Conservation District. Both speakers shared their practical experiences on using rotational grazing to reduce feeding costs, increase animal health and performance, improve the land and keep livestock farming “profitable and enjoyable.”
This virtual workshop was open to all members of the public, including those interested in learning about agriculture, new/beginning farmers and/or longstanding livestock producers looking to gain further knowledge on the benefits and methods of multi-paddock rotational grazing. Following both presentations, there was time for group discussion and questions.
