Event Description

On Thursday evening, August 16th from 6:30 to 9pm, Woodwatch Farm, owned by the Trush Family located at 2011 Firetower Road, Georgetown, N.Y. will host a Silvo-pasture walk led by Schuyler Co. CCE Agriculture and Natural Resources Educator, forest practitioner, and grass farmer Brett Chedzoy.  The 300 acre beginning Highland beef cattle operation is a mix of open grasslands, transitional wooded areas and forest that could be enhanced by exploring the techniques of silvo-pasturing.  Topics to be discussed include:  Basic planning criteria and practical application including a realistic budget, tree species, site selection and thinning options, animal needs and grazing impact, shelter-breaks and out-wintering considerations and managing the whole system with long term goals in mind.  Please prepare for the weather.

These great local events to get practical ideas, network with other farmers and enjoy some ice-cream are supported by The Madison Co. SWCD, The Upper Susquehanna Coalition, The NYS AEM Program, The Finger Lakes-Lake Ontario Watershed Protection Alliance, Northeast SARE and Organic Valley/CROPP Cooperative
