Livestock can be a wonderful tool for both farm profitability and ecological health of the farm, if only managed correctly. Understanding the way animals behave, and thinking of our role as orchestrating their movement through a habitat is critical to maintain the health of the animals and of the land. Join this webinar to explore the key considerations for ruminants, pigs, and poultry and ways they can be ecologically managed on the farm.

Presenter: Steve Gabriel  of Wellspring Forest Farm in New York
