Thank you to everyone who attended the two "Silvopasture Day Courses" at Black Queen Angus Farm in Berlin, NY on August 24th, and at Wellscroft Fence Company in Harrisville, NH on August 25th.  Also, thank you to the Hudson-Mohawk RC&D Council, the Granite State Graziers, NY GLCI, Albany CCE, Albany SWCD and others for helping to organize and make those events possible!

85 graziers, foresters and agency folks participated in the two workshops.  This was the first time that we have been able to go beyond the classroom to look at how to put silvopasturing into motion in the Northeast.  The attached documents are the handouts that were used for the workshops.  I wanted to get these posted now to avoid further procrastination, but based on course feedback, we'll be making numerous changes, additions and hopefully improvements to the materials in the near future and add them as sections to the "Guide to Silvopasturing in the Northeast" (available at www.forestconnect.info)
