Grazing, Soils, & Pastures: An Intensive 3-night Online Workshop
Join us for our 2020 virtual pasture class series with Dr. Woody Lane this October!
About the Class:
This is a very practical, down-to-earth workshop on forages, grazing, pastures, & soils. You’ll learn how to set up a grazing system, how forages grow, what makes a good pasture, when to open the gate and when to move animals off a pasture, how to soil test, fertilize, and lime your pastures. Three evenings of intensive online instruction from a leader in the grazing field. This class is suitable for folks just starting out in the grazing world, and people with a bit more experience who are working on rehabbing a pasture, or re-vamping their system.
This class will be taught in three sessions from 6:00-8:30pm on October 26-28th. It is strongly recommended that participants attend all three sessions because the material builds over the length of the course.
The cost of the class is $50 for the whole series. Current OPN members can attend for the discounted rate of $35, contact the OPN program manager for discounted registration.
Registration is now open and closes when the first class begins at 6:00pm on October 26th.
