Publication from USDA Explores Silvopasture Considerations

Considerations for Establishing Silvopastures on Wooded Sites is a new publication from the USDA Forest Service. The 10-page Technical Note is available free online. It addresses key considerations when evaluating an existing woodland for silvopasture management, including soils, slopes, tree management, legal aspects, and more. The publication explains that silvopasture management is distinct from just grazing a wooded pasture because it focuses on managing trees, forage, and livestock together.
