Event Description

March 8, 2022, 7:30 pm EST – Planned Grazing – Making the Cows work for you – Pam Iwanchysko

CEU Area – Crop Management – 1 credit

Planned grazing refers to the process of moving livestock from paddock to paddock in a pasture, at the correct time and for the correct duration. Managers using this type of system, subdivide their pastures into paddocks which enables them with the power of controlling the livestock movement.  A project was developed and monitored at the Manitoba Beef and Forage Initiatives Research Farm near Brandon, Manitoba that provided a means of showcasing proper grazing management in order to promote the reduction and elimination of the practice of continuous grazing. It demonstrated the positive impact of monitoring and managing the movement of animals, with the proper timing and duration, allowing for proper amounts of rest and recovery time for the plants and how that can rehabilitate the landscape. Pam will provide an overview of the results of the three-year project.

Global leaders gather to take action on sustainable livestock production

Livestock are seen as both a source of greenhouse gas emissions and a solution to climate change. To help bring balance, dialogue and understanding to an often-contentious issue, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations last fall hosted the first-ever Global Conference on Sustainable Livestock Transformation. 

Feeding the Future

The agri-food industry is the most important in the world – we all need to eat. Research and innovation have enabled tremendous change in the livestock sector, and we can expect that change to increase in rate.
