In this webinar, Sarah will cover the essentials of using grazing livestock to improve pasture soils and the quality of pasture forages.  She will discuss best practices for pasture management with the goal of maximizing pasture dry matter intake, increasing soil ecosystem function, and optimizing animal performance and well-being.

Presenter: Sarah Flack

Sarah Flack is the author of The Art and Science of Grazing, and Organic Dairy Production and is a nationally known speaker and consultant on grazing and organic livestock. She grew up on a Vermont family farm that used management-intensive grazing and mob stocking. She later pursued graduate studies on pasture management at the University of Vermont. She has written extensively about grass farming and is known for teaching workshops that take a practical approach to applying the science of grazing.
