Silvopasturing is an important new agroforestry system for the Northeast that allows for the sustainable production of timber, forages and livestock on the same land. Join us for this one day course to develop the skills and knowledge that will help you to evaluate, plan and implement silvopasture projects in the context of your own farm or land that you manage for others.
Sessions will cover basic principles, but also focus on practical applications of the knowledge so that you can be more confident and efficient as you make management decisions. Instructors are experienced forestry extension educators and technical specialists from Cornell University Cooperative Extension and Paul Smiths College.
The course will be taught rain or shine in silvopasture settings, so please dress for the weather. Graziers, foresters, agency personnel are especially encouraged to attend. CEU credits pending for Certified Foresters and Crop Advisors. An archived webinar at www.youtube.com/ForestConnect is available.
