Pasture Potential Workshop: A Great Success!

Pasture Potential Workshop Group

This past Monday, 70 people crowded into a room at the Day's Inn in Lindsay for our exciting Pasture Potential workshop. The main draw was Laura Paine, who has had a varied career in academia, government, non-profit and the business sector in Wisconsin. She presented a fascinating series of studies on pasture utilization and factors influencing bird survival. Ron Reid of the Couchiching Conservancy talked about pasture renovation on the Carden Plain.

In the afternoon, presentations included detailed case studies on how local farming cooperatives can be an effective tool for marketing beef. 

Thank you to all our wonderful presenters, and to everyone who came out and participated in this insightful workshop. We were all certainly left with plenty of food for thought, and everyone was well-fed too!

Thanks also to our co-hosts, the Couchiching Conservancy, and to our sponsors, Kawartha Conservation, Century 21, and the Peterborough County Cattlemens' Association
