Ontario Forage Council is excited to continue our partnership with the Canadian Forage and Grassland Association to extend the Advanced Grazing Mentorship Program with a series of pasture walks in the summer of 2023.  Each of OFC’s Ontario Advanced Grazing Mentors will host a field day that highlights a different rotational grazing BMP.  Due to the generous funding from the Farmers for Climate Solutions, these events are offered FREE of charge.


Dean Cober will kick off the series in Grey County on Saturday, June 17 with a live paddock design workshop and animal movement demo.  Mike Swidersky (Bruce County), O’Brien and Christine O’Reilly (OMAFRA) will be presenting demos on how to fence in tricky situations as well as managing your supply with precision pasture management and rising plate meter demo.  Attendees are invited to bring their fence tester to join in the demonstration!  Arrive a few minutes early to register and get your coffee and muffin, then stay a few minutes after the demos to chat over light sandwiches!  Water and an accessible washroom will be onsite.


Anita O’Brien will host the second event in Leeds County on Saturday, June 24, where the focus will be on water systems, followed by Birgit Martin hosting the final field day on Manitoulin Island on Saturday, August 12 where attendees will learn about carrying capacity.  More details on the agendas for these walks are coming soon!


These pasture walks are registered Knowledge Sharing Events (KSE) for On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF).
