Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District is offering a unique solution to weed control for organic farms. Livestock for Landscapes consultant, Kathy Voth, will present a cutting edge grazing tool based on research by Fred Provenza at Utah State University. Ms. Voth will share techniques in teaching livestock to eat nutritious weeds and know not to eat toxic weeds.
Attendees will leave the workshop with a better understanding of the science behind teaching animals to eat nutritious, not toxic weeds. An individualized plan will be created during the workshop to address your farm, animals and the particular weeds you want to control. The workshop includes the book and DVD, “Teaching Cows to Eat Weeds” and access to consultant, Kathy Voth, for questions after the workshop, while you are training your animals.
Cost is $50 per farm (two attendees from each farm is allowed)
Attendance is limited to 15 farms, so do not delay in reserving your space!
