Cattle Handling Workshop and Pasture Walk (Dover-Foxcroft)

July 20, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Attendees will hear a presentation on reducing stress in cattle by Colt Knight, UMaine Extension livestock specialist. There will also be a live demonstration of Shaw Road Farm’s practices of separating three beef animals from a herd of approximately 50.

Farm owners, the Cooksons, will discuss how they have changed their practices to more effectively reduce the long term and immediate stress on the herd. Also, attendees will have an opportunity to see Shaw Road Farm’s mob grazing pasture management system and water delivery system with a pasture walk.

Those interested in attending are requested to contact Colt Knight at colt.knight@maine.edu.
