What: Do you graze, plan to graze or lease out land?

Rock Gremillion, Gemillion Farm, pastured pork producer and Lauren Reker of KDES, goat specialist will share their knowledge on what type of fencing to use, methods of watering, power sources, shelter and other challenges. On the management side of grazing, Sam Bingham will guide us through the Holistic Planning Process, producing a chart and map for the years planned grazing. We will include how to prepare for variable weather, land challenges and how to be flexible when a plan is changed or not working.
