Appalachian Grazing Conference

This coming weekend I’m headed down to the Appalachian Grazing Conference in Morgantown, West Virginia.film Zootopia 2016 download

Greg Judy and Kathy Voth will be the featured/keynote speakers.  And I get to speak too.

Actually, there are breakout sessions with a handful of slots available for vendors to use. I’m attending on behalf of Sustainable Genetics, LLC .

Greg Judy will be discussing his use of Mob Grazing otherwise known as Holistic Planned Grazing or High Stock Density Grazing on the farms he runs in his home state of Missouri.  I’m really looking forward to hearing/seeing his presentation at the conference.  We haven’t done much in the way of Mob Grazing though I’ve definitely read quite a bit about it in The Stockman Grassfarmer Magazine.

Kathy Voth will be speaking on her development and use of training methods to get livestock to eat “weeds”.   Question though, If animals are eating the plants and getting some nutrition out of them, are they really weeds?Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download?

I’ve heard Kathy speak before and she is really good, has lots of good advice and sound methodology.

I will be talking about the “right” type of cattle for grass-finished beef production.  Obviously our bull, Beral of Wye UMF 9288 is one such progenitor of grass-finishing genetics, but really there are a lot of cattle from many breeds that qualify.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

The Neil Trask cattle that were developed in South Carolina by that gentleman are Polled Herefords.  Unlike the Hereford cattle most commonly found today, these ones are low frame, incredibly stout, deep, and easy fleshing, and have tremendous adaptation to endophyte infected Tall Fescue.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
