Ohio Pasture Measurement Project - 2009

The Ohio Pasture Measurement Project is in full swing for 2009. For more details about this project check out the original post. Basiclly, this project involves graziers measuring the same pasture field every week using a commercially available rising plate meter and reporting the measurement. We then calculate how much the pasture is growing during that week. (The specific plate meter we are using is made by Jenquip and available through Kencove Farm Fence Supplies.) Results will be posted on this blog.

This year we have over 30 volunteers measuring their pasture.
