Webinar: Planning for a Silvopasture: Sustainable timber, forage and livestock.

Brett Chedzoy, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County

September 16, 2020

Presentations at 12:00 to 1:00 PM and again at 7:00 to 8:00 PM (webinars may run long with questions)

This email includes details on how to connect to the forthcoming ForestConnect Webinar.  The instructions below include the process for you to obtain your unique “registration id” for this month’s webinar.  Note that webinars are live at noon and 7PM, for an hour each, but the meeting space is reserved from noon until 8PM.  Your registration allows participation in either or both the noon and 7PM webinar, and from any computer.

With growing interest and opportunities for silvopasturing (which is the integrated production of forage, timber and livestock), what are the steps and key considerations for its successful integration into land management strategies?  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. 

Bio: Brett works regionally as a forester with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County, 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.
