Some of you will be heading to the Grassfed Exchange Conference later this week in Albany.  This national conference dedicated to pasture-based livestock production will have a record attendance of 500!  This is the first time that it will be hosted on the East Coast.  Peter, Joe & I will be giving presentations on silvopasturing on Wed & Friday.  I will add some post-conference pictures and information here.  Details for the conference can be found under the "events" page.

finally getting around to posting the presentations that we gave at the Grassfed Exchange Conference in September.  If you're not familiar with the Grassfed Exchange, I would encourage you to check out their website.  Best conference I've ever attended!

I recently noticed that the presentations from the 2017 Grassfed Exchange Conference are now on their youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmsBRbUHWYwHUwaTwIppaEg (and also on their website:https://grassfedexchange.com/videos)   Two of my favorites from the youtube channel are Ray Archuleta's "Regenerating the Land" and Jonathan Lundgren's "Beneficial Insects".  Lots of food for thought in those talks.

In the afternoon session, Peter, Joe and I covered the "how to" side of silvopasturing in these three presentations:

We have about 20+ acres of woods we can use as a silvopasture, but we're not sure how to start it. The woods are a mess, and we're not sure if we should "clear cut" and start over, or?? We have a lot…Continue
