Learn managed grazing at Wisconsin schools

Learn managed grazing at Wisconsin schools

By Blake Jackson

The popular Wisconsin Schools of Grazing are back after a 10-year hiatus. Organized by a collaboration of agricultural organizations, these workshops offer farmers a unique opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and hands-on experience in managed grazing.

The workshops will be held at two locations:

  • The UW Marshfield Agricultural Research Station on August 9-10
  • The UW Lancaster Agricultural Research Station on September 27-28.

Designed for a focused learning environment, each workshop is limited to 20 participants.

These two-day workshops go beyond theory, providing participants with practical skills they can use on their farms. Attendees will engage directly with herds and pastures at the research stations.

This hands-on approach allows them to learn skills like paddock sizing, fence setup, forage measurement, and low-stress livestock handling.

In addition to the practical elements, the workshops will feature in-depth sessions on critical areas like livestock nutrition, herd health, and the economic benefits of pasture-based systems.

Laura Paine, Outreach Coordinator at GrassWorks, highlights the program's advantage: "Participants gain real-world skills they can implement right away on their farms, rather than just learning from videos or lectures."

Registration and Information

The registration fee of $175 covers all sessions, meals, a reference guide, and a helpful pasture tool. Early registration is recommended due to limited space.
