Webinar: Less Stress, More Grass by Managing Holistically
December 11, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC+0Free
Join us for a free webinar featuring Savory Institute Accredited Professional, Phyllis Van Amburgh. She will present the case study of her farm, Dharma Lea in upstate New York.
Organic dairy farm, Dharma Lea, experienced economic, social and ecological benefits when making the switch from rotational grazing to holistic planned grazing. Improvements over four years included a huge increase in grass production, a huge improvement in livestock health, a large reduction in feeding costs, improved milk quality, significantly better quality of life for the entire family, and improved financial position.
Read about research done on Dharma Lea, and watch a video featuring Phyllis and her husband Paul here.
Holistically-managed pastures had 1.5 and 4.5 times higher average abundances of obligate grassland birds than minimally rotated or continuously grazed pastures, respectively.
