What We Can Learn From Silvopasturing in Other Corners of the World

Posted on August 19, 2015 at 2:40pm 3 Comments

This forum unintentionally drew an initial concentration of members from the northeastern US, though many folks have since joined from other parts of the country and globe (welcome!).  Silvopasturing practices certainly need to be customized to the local area and situation, but the principals remain largely the same no matter where working trees and livestock are raised together in a sustainable manner. 

In hopes of broadening discussions, participation and what we can learn from…

Silvopasture Development Progress at Angus Glen Farms

Posted on August 19, 2015 at 1:00pm 7 Comments

I've had the best of intentions to be more active on this forum this summer to share my thoughts and experiences with a recent "low grade" timber harvest at our farm to promote silvopasture development.  The harvest wrapped-up a few weeks ago, and I just returned from quick trip to Argentina.  With that behind me, it's time to get some pictures and storied up about the project.  But first, as a bit of background, I've pasted below an article that I was asked to write for the current edition…

Brett, I just found this site from your producer profile in the latest SGF.  I am very interested in any details you'd care to share of your silvopasture use in a beef operation.  I am just starting a grassfed beef operation on 250 acres and just got my started herd.  They are linebred, old-type black angus, largely Octoraro and Wye, but some others in the background too.  Got them from a guy named Larry Sansom in KY.  I'm also curious how you like your Octoraro and Wye angus stock--seemed like a good way to go but it's always good to hear someone else's experiences!

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

-Darren

Hello Brett, you  indicated about an international silvopasture program, could you please advise.

Rgs,

Ricardo

Hi Ricardo

I think you're referring to the blog that I started a couple months back asking for more "stories" from other members on their silvopasture experiences and projects in other parts of the US and world?

You need to be a member of silvopasture to add comments!
