Grazing Club Workshop with Clayton Robins

Title: Grazing Club Workshop with Clayton Robins
Location: Brandon Research Station, Brandon, MB
Date & Time: Wednesday, March 1, 9:30am to 3pm

Topic: Cover Crops and Energy-Dense Forages

Clayton Robins, beef producer from Rivers and former AAFC beef & forage researcher, will deliver a workshop on incorporating cover crops into cash cropping and/or grazing rotations.

The workshop will address considerations for timing of seeding, use and termination as well as selection of appropriate cover crop species.

The workshop will also address the opportunities and potential impacts for use of energy-dense forage species when provided to beef cattle at key production stages, based on findings from Clayton’s Nuffield Scholarship study.

The session will provide the opportunity for producers to work through a cover crop selection process and management scenario on fields of their choosing from their own operation.

Producers are asked to bring an aerial photo of the piece of land (eg quarter section) they plan to grow a cover crop and/or energy-dense forages.
