OSWEGO CO., N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County (CCE Oswego) will be hosting a free virtual workshop through Zoom on Thursday, April 7th from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. This workshop will give an introduction to multi-paddock rotational grazing for livestock farmers. Discover the many benefits of rotational grazing and learn some of the practical skills and methods needed to implement it on your farm. Guest speakers will be grazing experts, Brett Chedzoy from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County, and Troy Bishopp from Madison County Soil and Water Conservation District.
