Pasture Walk

Jefferson County Pasture Walk Planned

(Carrollton, OH) — A Pasture Walk is planned for Thursday, August 26, 2010 at Spring Valley Farm located near Mount Pleasant, OH on County Road 1. This pasture walk is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.

Join us this month as we travel to Spring Valley Farms, where you will have a chance to learn about the Finney family’s experience with the ultra-high stock density grazing technique known as mob grazing. We will also be showcasing different temporary fencing and pressurized watering options.

Participants are encouraged to visit with the Eastern Ohio Grazing Council members, SWCD, and NRCS personnel during a social gathering following the workshop. Refreshments will be provided. Agland Co-op and Circle L Fence LTD have graciously agreed to sponsor this event.

Registration is required by August 20, 2010.

The Pasture Walk is presented by the Eastern Ohio Grazing Council in cooperation with Carroll, Columbiana, Harrison, Jefferson, & Mahoning Soil & Water Conservation Districts and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. For more information, contact Carroll SWCD at 330-627-9852.
