Grazing Networks for Livestock Producers
Practical Farmers of Iowa invites Iowa farmers who currently graze livestock of any kind, or hope to in the future, to participate in new farmer-led grazing groups the organization is forming across the state. The new grazing groups aim to address the need for more peer-to-peer grazing support. Participating is free, and farmers do not need to be Practical Farmers members. The first six regional gatherings will take place in May and June, each hosted by a farmer, and will run from 4:30-7:00 p.m. Dinner will also be provided at each. Each group will take a pasture walk together and discuss spring grazing management on lush pastures, first-cut hay, planting summer annuals, and more.
