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?
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.
If you plan to sign up for the NRCS bedded pack cost share this year, you MUST attend one of these workshops.
The RMA provides risk management and financial tools to Vermont’s farmers with information through education and outreach programs. More information is available at: www.rma.usda.gov. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
