Oct. 20, 2020 - 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM: Ben Peckman, owner of Slate Ridge Dairy Farm in Franklin County, has used cover crops and no-till techniques in his fields for many years but recently incorporated a small beef herd into the rotation on a portion of his acreage. The Oct. 20th pasture walk will focus on infrastructure and paddock design, issues experienced adopting a new practice and with incorporating a new herd, as well as rotation and cover crop species selection.
This pasture walk is held in conjunction with the PA-Grazing Lands Coalition fall meeting, taking place at Slate Ridge Dairy in the afternoon on October 20, 2020. Visit paglc.org for more information.
Technical advisors will be onsite to help address specific questions.
