Event Description

Planning for a Silvopasture: Sustainable timber, forage and livestock

Presented by Brett Chedzoy, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County.

With growing interest and opportunities for silvopasturing (which is the integrated production of forage, timber and livestock), what are the steps and key considerations for its successful integration into land management strategies?  Brett will share the contributions of silvopasturing to his own family’s farms, and his recommendations for others to adopt this innovative agroforestry system.  He will also introduce a silvopasture management plan template developed by experts from Cornell, Yale and the University of Vermont as a tool to help managers with their own projects. 

Note that webinars are live at noon and 7PM, for an hour each, but the meeting space is reserved from noon until 8PM.  Your registration allows participation in either or both the noon and 7PM webinar, and from any computer.

attached are two documents that I'll be referring to during tomorrow's presentation.  I believe they are already archived elsewhere on this site.
