Joe Orefice replied to Mike Case's discussion Stocking density
"Mike, As you mentioned it's really difficult to determine stocking densities because land productivity is so variable in the northeast. You'll also find that summer drought will have you looking for more pasture some years. 20 goats/sheep…"

"Brett, There were no soil amendments added. This was intentional because I am also interested in the long-term change in pH as the site transitions to pasture. I expect pH will rise some but how much I really don't know. There's no doubt…"

Brett Chedzoy commented on Joe Orefice's blog post New publication
"Joe, There were no soil amendment treatments in the study, correct?  As we learn more about growing forages under trees, it will be interesting to see how nutritional quality is influenced by available Ca, pH, excess aluminum and other…"

Joe Orefice commented on Joe Orefice's blog post New publication
"John, I did not fence off any trees, the whole plot was open for grazing. However, livestock were only in each paddock for a maximum of 2 days with at least a 30 day rest period. Also, trees were about 60' tall and over 6" in…"

"Thanks, Joe, for sharing your research paper. I was curious about a couple of things. In the silvopasture treatments, did you fence off any of the trees to prevent damage or was the entire plot open and available for grazing? Also, were there any…"

It is not meant to be a comprehensive guide to this complex practice but it should help inform folks about some options. Please feel free to share:…See More
