Planned grazing is a method of farm planning that allows all grass-based livestock farmers to look ahead and create options for good times and bad. For women farmers in particular, planning out family and farm events at the same time can be absolutely required to help balance the farm’s daily needs with farmer quality of life and longer term environmental management goals. Through a multi-year SARE-funded project, grazing technical assistance personnel have been trained to help farmers learn how to use grazing charts and apply the concepts of holistic management to improve their farms.
This session will focus on the female farmers and technical assistance providers in the project; how the project has worked to address their needs and what some of the specific results have been for female farmers.
