Advanced Grazing: A Day-long Intensive with Jim Gerrish

Lake Morey Resort
Fairlee, VT

This day-long workshop is intended for pasture managers who have moved beyond the basics and are focused on refining and improving their systems.  Jim Gerrish is an independent grazing lands consultant providing service to farmers and ranchers on both private and public lands across the US and internationally. He has 22 years of beef-forage systems research and outreach while on the faculty at the University of Missouri, and co-founded a multi-day grazing management program that has been duplicated in fifteen other states. 

The cost is $35 for students or $50 for others, and includes an invitation to attend the Friday evening screening of Symphony of the Soil at 7pm, or the concurrently offered Grazing Around the World presentation with Jim Gerrish.

Part of the 20th Annual Vermont Grazing & Livestock Conference taking place January 15 & 16, 2016.   We hope you'll join the Vermont Grass Farmers and Vermont Beef Producers’ Associations and the UVM Extension Center for Sustainable Agriculture to celebrate twenty years of livestock farming vitality through a combination of technical workshops, social events, lunch discussions, hearty food, and great company.  

A detailed schedule is available here, and online registration is here
