Grazing Groups Connect Livestock Farmers
By Meghan Filbert
During May and June, PFI held six grazing groups throughout Iowa. 176 farmers attended – leaving inspired and better connected to other graziers! These informal get-togethers gave graziers the opportunity to take a pasture walk, ask lots of questions and connect beginning farmers with those that have many years of experience to share.
A range of topics were explored – fence and water set-ups, stockpiling and bale grazing, warm- and cool-season pasture management, clipping and haying, livestock breeds and meat marketing – to list a few.
