Event Description

Wednesday, June 9, at 3 p.m.

Silvopasture (integrating trees, livestock, and forage) is gaining traction across the Northeast as a synergistic production system that can benefit land, livestock and farmers. But what can be said about its role in capturing and storing carbon? Cornell experts will share three increasingly common examples of silvopasture in New York and discuss their contributions to reducing atmospheric carbon.

With Brett Chedzoy, forester with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County working regionally on forestry, agroforestry and grazing education and with over 30 years experience in silvopasture on Angus Glen Farm, and Steve Gabriel, extension specialist with the Cornell Small Farms Program and a farmer at Wellspring Forest Farm utilizing silvopasture for sheep and ducks. He authored Silvopasture which was released in 2019.
