Grazing management program to be held in Nebraska counties PDF Print E-mail
Written by Holyoke Enterprise   

Want to harvest more of what is already grown without hurting animal performance?

“What Really Matters in Grazing Management?” featuring Jim Gerrish will be presented in eight locations across Nebraska. The three workshops close to Colorado will be held Dec. 15-16.

Learn how to increase both stocking rate and carrying capacity. Discover why balancing recovery and use is important. Finally, see why Gerrish firmly believes ranchers need to “Get the Hay Out” of their operations.

Gerrish is an independent grazing lands consultant for farmers and ranchers across the US. He is a regular columnist for The Stockman GrassFarmer and Beef Magazine. People can learn more about him at his website:
