Posted in Canton Features

Spring Fling Pasture Walk will be held Thursday, May 21, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Bonnie and Vance Haugen’s Springside Farm, Canton, Minn. Topics will be forage budgeting, in addition to grass, legume, and weed identification. On-farm examples are the winter rye and grazing corn with other strategies to extend the grazing season.

Speakers Jim Paulson, UM-Extension Grazing Specialist, Jake Overgaard, UM-Extension Ag, Steve Rischette, UM-Extension, and Vance Haugen, UW-Extension, will show us how to identify these forages and discuss forage budgeting with Olaf Haugen, managing grazing farmer of Springside Farm.

Beverage and food will be provided by Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship (DGA), an initiative to train a new generation in the dairy grazing business and to give retiring farmers options for passing on the farm. Bonnie, the DGA Minnesota Education Coordinator, will be available to answer questions about the program.

Anyone interested is welcome. Warning, most GPS get our location wrong. Directions: from intersection of Hwy 44 & 52, go north on Dove .5 miles, then east on Deer Rd. 1.5 miles. On east side on hilltop is Fire# 12620. RSVP helpful at bonnie@dairygrazingapprenticeship.org, or (507) 421-7170.
