Have you ever wondered if there is a more profitable way to raise livestock?  
How would adding livestock to your land improve your bottom line, water and soil quality?
Can you pasture livestock and make as much money?
These and other questions will be answered by farm economists, grazing specialists, and current producers at this workshop. We will go to the field and see a grazing operation and recent EQIP fence project.
