Building Your Grazing Plan Course Begins September 16

DURHAM, N.H. – A seven-week course designed for farmers who graze ruminant animals and want to maximize their pasture production begins September 16.

Build Your Grazing Plan, designed by UNH Cooperative Extension Field Specialist Daimon Meeh, will run from September 16 to October 31. The course is conducted primarily online but will also include three traditional classroom sessions.

Participants will go through the process of writing a grazing plan. At the end of the program, they will have designed a functional grazing plan for their specific farms. Additionally, these plans will include all the criteria needed to apply for financial assistance through the New Hampshire USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service's Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).

Each week, participants will complete online assignments, take advantage ofonline office hours to chat one-on-one with the instructor, and enjoy the interactions between the participants during online class time.

Classes begin with the first of the three traditional classroom meetings on September 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the New Hampshire Audubon Center, 84 Silk Farm Road, Concord. The next two in-person meetings are October 2 from 5 to 7 p.m., and October 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Normanton Farms, 226 Charles Bancroft Highway, Litchfield.

The cost is $200 per person. To register online, go to bit.ly/GrazingPlan. For more information, contact daimon.meeh@unh.edu or call (603) 679-5616.
