  1. Do you have a synopsis of the Pasture Management workshop that was presented on the 17th if September? Are there any other programs planned for the winter months?

    • Unfortunately we didn’t cover that workshop. We’ve not heard of any subsequent workshops. We’ll sure pass it along if we do.
