Pasture Management Online Course

Author: WI School for Beginning Dairy & Livestock Farmers

Description: New Online Pasture Management Course in 2020. Based off of 25 years of Pasture Management taught at UW Madison.

The pasture management course is a training program in basic cool-season pasture management and guides the creation of a personalized pasture management plan. This course will cover pasture establishment, cool-season grass and legume growth basics, and pasture nutrient management. The course also discusses how to manage nutrient needs, water systems, grazing dairy cows, and pasture raised beef, sheep, and goats. You’ll learn from various lecturers, researchers and farmers alike, who have ample experience in the field. The final project is to develop a managed grazing plan for your farm (real or imagined). On campus, this course meets once a week for eight weeks. The online class consists of eleven (approximately 1-hour long) video recorded lectures that students can view in their own home at their own pace.
