Title: Silvopasturing: A Solution to Some 21st Century Challenges on Rural Landscapes
What will you learn?
Silvopasturing has vast potential throughout the country to increase the profitability of rural land ownership while at the same time addressing numerous environmental challenges through the sustainable and symbiotic production of timber and livestock on the same acreage. In the modern world of invasive plants, high land ownership costs, and mounting challenges to healthy and sustainable woodlands, it is worth taking a new look at silvopasturing as a valuable option for the management of some forested landscapes. Silvopasturing differs from woodlot grazing of the past in that the frequency and intensity of the grazing is controlled to achieve the desired objectives. New fencing systems, a better understanding of animal behavior and the evolution of “management intensive grazing” practices have enabled us to gain the necessary level of control over livestock to achieve positive impacts from silvopasturing. learn more here...
