Eastern Kansas Grazing School

Eastern Kansas Grazing School is a workshop on Management Intensive Grazing for beginning and experienced graziers. 

The science of grassland management and forage production is a complex and challenging subject. Matching the nutrition needs of various classes of livestock to the seasonal distribution of yield and quality of forages is dauting task. Because grazing livestock is selective, unmanaged grazing often results in stands dominated by grass species highly tolerant to grazing or by grasses with poor palatability.  At the school we will discuss these concepts more indepth.
