Silvopasture Workshop Slated for Late-July
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/11/2016
The University of Wisconsin-Extension, along with University of Minnesota Extension, and the Savanna Institute will jointly host a Silvopasture workshop in Luck this month. The workshop will be held July 29-30, with networking and a discussion among
silvopasture practitioners and natural resource professionals about their experience with silvopasture.
Silvopasture is a sustainable agroforestry practice where trees and forage crops are grown together on the same piece of land, and grazing animals eat the forages. The livestock provide annual income, and the trees may provide income after a while in the form
of wood, nuts or other products. Silvopasture can provide economic and environmental benefits that complement regular forestry and open pasture production, including shade for livestock and habitat for birds and beneficial insects.
Registration is $45 for the full workshop, or $30 for just the Saturday program. For additional information or to register, call 608-262-8188 or 612-626-9272.
