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.
