Rotational Pasture Series: Goat Paddock Moves
Monday, July 27 | 2 – 2:30 p.m.
Starting a pasture rotational system can be challenging. In this three-part series, you will meet three farmers who have spent their beginning farming years creating processes to make a regenerative pasture system work for their farms.
In part 3, we’ll learn about fencing – which is a key part of developing a rotational grazing system. Adam will show us how he uses temporary electric netting to rotate his Kiko goats through new pastures. He will also demonstrate how he plans a paddock move and show some easy steps to setting up temporary fencing.
Host: Adam Ledvina | Iowa Kiko Goats and Blue Collar Goatscaping
