Cornell Extension will hold two one-hour Sustainable Timber, Forage and Livestock Silvopasture webinars on September 16th at noon and 7 pm.

Silvopasture is the integrated production of forage, timber and livestock.

With growing public interest in opportunities for silvopasturing, what are the steps and key considerations for its successful integration into land management strategies?

Brett Chedzoy is the Forest Manager of Cornell’s Arnot Teaching and Research Forest, and in his spare-time owns and manages large grazing operations in Central Argentina and Upstate New York that are largely comprised of silvopastures.

In these webinars, Brett will share the contributions of silvopasturing to his own family’s farms, and his recommendations for others to adopt this innovative agroforestry system.  He will also introduce a silvopasture management plan template developed by experts from Cornell, Yale and the University of Vermont as a tool to help managers with their own projects.

To take part in one of these webinars, you need to register.
