The Science of Overgrazing and How To Avoid It

November 8, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

15.00

Pastures can take a beating but only to a point. In this course you will learn the ecological theory of pasture plant communities and the detrimental nature of overgrazing (this is some of the most interesting stuff I learned in 6 years of grad school). Harnessing this knowledge, we will then discuss practical strategies to maximize the productivity and profitability of your pasture and reduce problems with weeds and mud. This is an intermediate-level class, so some experience with pastures will be helpful but not required. This course will be taught by Gordon Jones, PhD, SOREC Extension Faculty.
