“There’s no such thing as a free lunch.”
You can confidently graze your cows (and sheep) out on pasture with the sun and rain and a little effort being all it takes to convert free grass into beef.
Do you have wooded areas? Rough ground you can’t mow?
Just want to make the most of your property and have some beef or milk for your family?
Beef, properly rotated through the various areas of your property, can turn all those liabilities into assets.
In this workshop you’ll gain the confidence and knowledge to raise and graze your cows on grass in a responsible and sustainable way so that the land is regenerative to provide grass all season long by learning:
- How to move cattle (psychology and use of fences)
- When and how to rotate the cattle for maximum benefit to animals and grass
- How to use electric fence effectively
- The types of fences that make a rotational grazing system work
- Types of electric fencers and how to set them up for maximum effectiveness
- The answers to your specific questions about your exact property and situation
Instructor Parker Holmes grew up working on industrial CAFO dairy farms and, after a year in the Agriculture program at Michigan State University decided that wasn’t for him. He has studied under Joel and Daniel Salatin as an apprentice, learning their rotational grazing secrets. He spent the past year as a contract farmer for Polyface Farm. In addition, he studied how to graze cattle at a special grazing school. Parker is now working on his own homestead with his wife, Lauren, using pigs, chickens, and eventually cattle to clear and revitalize fresh land.
