Silvopasture Development: Trees into Pasture

Webinar connection details for Wednesday June 4, 2014

Register here to receive direct notice of webinars.

Silvopasture is an agroforestry practice that sustainably produces timber, livestock, and forage on the same land.  Current technologies, such as portable electric fence and management intensive rotational grazing enable managers options not available in previous decades.  A key need for many northeastern landowners who manage livestock is to economically and sustainably create shade in pastures by establishing forest cover.  Shade provides numerous benefits to livestock. This webinar will discuss considerations of site quality, species selection, establishment, and subsequent management of trees.  

For background information on silvopasture, please review these resources:

  • An introduction to silvopasture production (webinar archive here)
  • A basis for expanding silvopasture in the Northeast (webinar archive here)
  • Northeastern guide for silvopasture (bulletin, here)

 
This webinar is approved for 1.0 credits of Society of American Foresters CFE category 1.

Once registered, you will receive connection details no later than the Tuesday before the webinar.  Webinar connection details will also be posted at http://CornellForestConnect.ning.com
