What is your occupation relative to silvopasture? (for example, owner/producer, extension specialist, agency specialist, etc.)
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.
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (email@example.com) for the full details. Have a nice day Thanks God bless.
