Fall Grazing Field Day Sept. 25 in La Crescent (09/21/2011)
A field day focusing on strategies for fall grazing management will be held Sunday, Sept. 25, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the grass-based Wolf Hill Farm sheep operation of Caroline van Schaik and Christopher Iremonger near La Crescent.

This event, which is sponsored by the Land Stewardship Projectís Farm Beginnings program, is free to Farm Beginnings participants and other Land Stewardship Project members, and is open to the public for a fee of $35. Please pre-register by calling Aimee Finley at 507-523-3366 or e-mailing aimee@landstewardshipproject.org.

The field day will focus on how to manage pastures in the fall to enhance next springís pasture productivity. What is done this fall will impact how pastures perform next spring, for better or worse. Participants can view firsthand how Wolf Hill Farm uses its grazing system to produce grass-finished lamb. This is also a unique opportunity to learn from and ask questions of Howard Moechnig, a Midwest Grasslands grazing consultant and sheep grazier.

For Farm Beginnings participants, this field day is required to be eligible to apply for a livestock loan.
