The Champaign County Soil and Water Conservation District, The Land Connection, University of Illinois Extension, and The Pasture Project at the Wallace Center are excited to offer an online series via Zoom exploring regenerative grazing this winter. This series will feature Kent Solberg, a Livestock and Grazing Specialist with the Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota, as well as Illinois graziers Jill Vonder Haar and Jim Isermann.

The series, “Regenerative Grazing: Fundamentals for Farmers,” will take place over three sessions. There is a $30 registration fee. The first session kicking off from 9-10:30 am CT on February 11, 2021. The topic, “The Why: What is Regenerative Grazing?” will include discussions of what regenerative grazing is and how it differs from continuous grazing, as well as the multiple benefits that can result from regenerative grazing.

The second session, “The How: The Nuts and Bolts of Regenerative Grazing on the Farm,” will take place from 9-10:30 am CT on February 18 and will dive into the details of regenerative grazing, including paddocks, fencing, water, forage basics, and grazing cover crops. An, “Ask Me Anything!” session will conclude the series on February 25 from 9-10 am CT and allow participants time to ask additional questions and have live discussion with Mr. Solberg and the Illinois grazier presenters.
