Advanced Pasture Workshop | SpringWood Farm, Kinzers, PA

SpringWood Farm, a DGA approved Master farm site in Kinzers, PA, is hosting an Organic Valley organized event here on Thursday, September 7, 2017! Dr Silvia Able-Caines and Sara Flack will be presenting at this advanced workshop on a range of topics in classroom setting and on pasture.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Energy dense rations for 100% grass-fed dairy cows
  • Strategies to maximize pasture intake on the lactating herd
  • The Graziers Toolbox: Improving Productivity and Quality
  • Connecting the Dots: From Quality Grass, to Healthy Cows, to Quality Milk
  • Farmer Panel for an hour in the afternoon followed by some info on the Grass-fed standards.
  • Optional visit to the SpringWood nanny/calf herd a few miles away

Plenty of good healthy food to go around. Early bird registration ($35) ends August 28 and late registration is $50. Handful of sponsors listed in the program are doing a good job at keeping the costs down.
