This weekend, Friday August 25th – Saturday August 26th CCEE Livestock Educator Jason Detzel is running a 2 day hands on clinic on rotational grazing. Over the course of the weekend you will learn the practical skills necessary for implementing a rotational grazing system on your farm to improve the overall health and efficiency of your animals. Rotational grazing systems can also increase your profits by lowering feed costs, improving pasture swards, decreasing on farm labour requirements among a host of other benefits.

The clinic will be divided into 2 parts:
August 25:  Classroom portion of the clinic at CCE Ulster County (232 Plaza Road in Kingston)
August 26 Farm visit at a participating farm (specific location to be announced after registration).

Registration per person is $20 or just $10 for 2017 CCEUC Agriculture Program Enrolled members. Children 12 and under free with an adult. Please note that while you are not required to attend both the class and farm visit, you must attend the class on Friday in order to attend the farm visit on Saturday.
