Friday, October 13, 1-4:00 pm: Grass-Based Dairy Management.
Interested in transitioning to grass-based milk production or looking to find out more about fine tuning your pasture management? Join NOFA-NY and Maple Hill Creamery as we learn more on grass-fed organic cow health, breeding, grazing and feed production. Tom McGrath will share his success with restoring depleted pastures through bale grazing, chicken manure and lime applications. Tour Autumn Valley Farm and hear from Tom as he shares his experiences in producing quality feed to meet your herd's nutritional needs in a grass-based system. Tom will also share his thoughts on dairy genetics and inline breeding with the group.
This event is produced by NOFA-NY with support from Maple Hill Creamery.
