Summer Fling Pasture Walk July 25 at Wagner Organic Dairy
Minnesota Ag Connection - 06/08/2018
The public is invited to a Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship Summer Fling Pasture Walk at Wagner Organic Dairy Farm July 25 from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The main focus will be on pasture production to improve farm economics. Kent Solberg and Jeff Duchene will
help us discuss pasture production financials and forage ideas for the Wagner Farm, 9750 Co. Rd. 5, N.W., Brandon.
Before lunch, the group will briefly discuss current dairy farming pressures and hear results from an ongoing study looking at financial performance of dairy grazing farms in four states.
Afternoon discussion will include a review of Ben's pasture, grazing when wet, renovating bluegrass dominated sward, and how well managed pastures can improve farm revenue. Ben will share what forages work on his farm and how they influence his feed
costs. The group will also be discussing how good pasture management can help overall farm financial success.
The project (four state ongoing grazing dairy farm financials) is sponsored by Green Lands Blue Waters and Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship, with funding support from the USDA Risk Management Agency.
