Event Description

[two webinar sessions; live at noon and again at 7PM]

Silvopasture is an agroforestry practice that sustainably develops and produces timber, livestock, and forage.  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 transition some of their woodlands into silvopasture. This webinar will discuss thinning methods for sunlight, tree selection, and working with foresters.  The webinar is presented by Dr. Peter Smallidge, NYS Extension Forester and Director of Cornell’s Arnot Teaching and Research Forest.

The connection details will be posted on this ning site by Monday June 16, and sent directly to all who register on the webinar e-list.  If you aren't on the e-list, you can join that at the link below.
