Advanced Grazing Topics with Jim Gerrish: Part 1--Getting the Most Out of Your Pastures

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

  • Are you a farmer who has been managing pasture for a few years?
  • Do you want to farm for environmental benefits AND to make money?
  • Are you ready to move your grazing knowledge to a new level?

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. 

Part 1: : If you want to get the most out of your pastures, focus on the things you can control. You can’t control the price of oil or steel, so keep those things to a minimum in your business. In this session we will learn how to capture more solar energy with every acre, how to get more water into your soil, how to keep minerals cycling efficiently through your pastures, and how to create more biodiversity across and through your pasture landscape.
