Join Jim Johnston from Pasture Hill Farm for an interactive Q&A session on his approach to rotational grazing in Northern Ontario. Jim and Wanda Johnston have been raising 100% grass-fed beef and pastured lamb at Pasture Hill Farm in New Liskeard for the past 28 years, and have a commercial-sized flock of 650 ewes. Before moving to farming full-time, Jim worked as the Forage and Sheep Researcher at the New Liskeard Agricultural Research Station.

 

Jim will start the session off by talking about how he manages rotational grazing on his farm, then we will open the session up for questions and discussion. Please bring your questions about how to approach establishing or expanding a grass-fed beef or sheep operation, and the principles and practicalities of rotational grazing!

 

*Before attending the session, please take the time to watch this recorded Farm Tour of Pasture Hill Farm, which showcases Jim and Wanda’s rotational grazing practices.

 

Member Month Meet-Ups are free and open to anyone.
