Description

Are ​you ​challenged ​by ​winter ​manure ​management?
Do ​you ​want ​to ​find ​more ​time ​and ​money?
Do ​you ​want ​to ​build ​your ​soil ​quality ​and ​fertility, ​and ​protect ​clean ​water?
Do ​you ​want ​to ​improve ​the ​comfort ​and ​health ​of ​your ​animals?

A ​well‐managed ​bedded ​pack ​system ​can ​help ​you ​achieve ​these ​goals, ​and ​more. ​ ​Join ​us ​at ​a ​one-day ​workshop ​to ​help ​you ​understand ​or ​improve ​bedded ​pack ​management. ​Featuring ​compost ​specialist ​Brian ​Jerose, ​VT-NRCS’ ​Bob ​Thompson, ​and ​Jennifer ​Colby ​of ​the ​UVM ​Center ​for ​Sustainable ​Agriculture, ​and ​experienced ​farmers.

The ​program ​is ​designed ​to ​help ​you ​understand ​how ​to ​build ​and ​maintain ​a ​pack ​to ​meet ​your ​needs. ​The ​day ​will ​also ​include ​calculations ​for ​bedding, ​building ​and ​costs; ​NRCS ​requirements ​to ​receive ​funding; ​animal ​health; ​and ​a ​Q&A ​with ​a ​dairy ​farmer ​experienced
in ​managing ​a ​pack ​system. ​

these ​workshops.
