The Lost Rivers Grazing Academy will be held June 14-17, 2011 in Salmon, Idaho. This is a great opportunity to receive some excellent, hands-on training in grazing management and specifically in Management-intensive Grazing. Instruction will be by University of Idaho Extension faculty along with the internationally renowned grazing guru Jim Gerrish.

I attended this training a few years ago and it is worth every minute of your time! It is very hands on, and fun! There is some classroom time but the instructors are dynamic and you get to apply much of it right on site–before you take it home and use it yourself! I would highly recommend this program for anyone that wants to do a better job managing their forage resource with grazing animals–even if you are not planning to impliment MIG! I hope you will consider attending–if June doesn’t work for you they hold a session in the fall as well! Cheers!
