Assessing Pasture Soil Fertility and Forage Quality
The health of ruminant animals is directly connected to the health of the pastures on which they graze and the supplemental hay they eat. But how do you know whether youre pastures are healthy? And how can you tell whether the hay that youre buying is of high quality? In this workshop, organic grass-based cattle farmer Matt Koziol will teach us how to read our pastures and the quality of our feed hay. Matt will walk us through how to take, interpret, and implement pasture soil tests to ensure we are making wise economic and ecological choices for our pastures. Hell cover a variety of pasture improvement strategies and discuss how different organic amendments can be used to fortify the pasture biology.

Well also interpret several different hay test results and view different samples of various hay types and qualities. Youll walk away from this workshop confident in making better decisions for your pastures and your animals.

There will also be time to discuss other aspects of running a 100% grass-fed beef farm.
