Cornell Cooperative Extension of Albany and Ulster Counties are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Fall Roundup Grazier Meeting, presented by CCE Educators Jason Detzel and Aaron Gabriel.

This meeting will address how to reduce production costs by extending the grazing season for livestock into the winter. Fall Roundup will be held Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 1:00 – 4:00 PM at Diamond Hills Farm, 80 Angus Lane, Hudson, NY.  Pre-registration is required and a fee of $10.00 per person is requested by October 30, 2018.

Feeding livestock is a major production expense and maintaining livestock performance during the winter is a challenge.  Often livestock have high nutritional requirements during the winter, for example, grass-finished beef, flushing ewes to get multiple births, or just to have livestock gain weight. There are several ways to extend the grazing season right into the winter, even in the Hudson Valley and further north.

Come to this workshop to learn about the appropriate crops for winter grazing, how to grow them, how to take samples for forage quality testing and how to manage fences and livestock during the winter months.  Bring your questions about winter livestock management to wind up the discussion.  Dress for the weather.  We will walk pastures and continue our discussion in an un-heated barn. There are no bathroom facilities available.
