Please describe, with two or three sentences, why you are interested in silvopasture. Your answer helps us ensure that only those people truly interested in silvopasture are added as members.
I raise livestock on rented land. Most farms in my area are mostly wooded. I recently thinned out the trees on a small field that had been abandoned for 20 years for a silvopasture experiment. If it goes well I am going to discuss a larger project I have been thinking about on a farm I manage that's owned by a forester.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (mrjamespollard@aol.com) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
