I sent a sample to DairyOne for analysis today since the numbers swing by many pounds for every % difference. If there is merit I want…

Silvopasture Book seeking Farmer Stories & Photos

Posted by Steve Gabriel on April 5, 2017 at 7:42am 0 Comments

Knowledge and information in agriculture is a mix of research, application, and experience that is never from a single individual, but rather a collective experience shared in the minds of many. We all benefit from sharing our experience.

A new book on the Agroforestry practice of Silvopasture, by Steve Gabriel, has the explicit goal of telling the story of what we know - and don’t know – about the concept of integrating livestock production with trees and forestry.

The book…
