Grazing on Conservation Lands

August 11, 2021

Location: Forest City and Hutchinson, MN

Help take a forage cutting amid 40 head of beef cattle managing 60 acres of CRP mid-contract management. Help determine how much longer the cattle should be grazing before the stubble height threshold is achieved. The second site we will visit an organic farm who have been prescribed grazing cattle on their Fish and Wildlife Service Easement for three years. Hear about some hardships of grazing within the confines of easements and organic markets. We will utilize this site as another opportunity to refine our forage cutting skills.
