oin the conversation! Over the last several years, Petaluma's Scott Ranch has been using its Rancher-to-Rancher learning site to observe firsthand what happens to the land when grazing management changes. Come see the effects of grazing with high density herds and long plant recovery. Are these changes altering soil health and water holding capacity? How are invasive weeds responding? Is perennial vs. annual forage growth shifting? Is productivity changing and livestock performance? What are the costs to change management?
Discussions will occur out in the field. Share your questions and experiences.
