Advanced Grazing Topics with Jim Gerrish: Part 2--Stock density: The most powerful tool in the grazier's Toolbox

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 2:
What is the difference between stocking rate and stock density? How do you know what is the right stock density on your farm today? How do you really use stock density as a management tool? We will talk about all of these topics in this session.
