Woodland Restoration Using Livestock and Silvopasture Principals
Friday, June 2nd 1:30-2:30pm E.T.
~ with Brett Chedzoy, MF, Cornell Cooperative Extension
Studies by The Nature Conservancy, Cornell University and the NY State College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) show deteriorating conditions in the majority of NY’s nearly 19 million acres of forest – a situation that is not unique to New York and the Northeast. Silvopasturing and intensively-managed livestock impacts are an innovative approach to address many of the modern challenges facing woodland owners and managers. This presentation will cover specific examples of how silvopasturing has been successfully used to rehabilitate degraded woodlands into profitable and productive forested landscapes that can sustained over time.
Brett Chedzoy, MF, is a regional extension forester with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County, and the Forest Manager of Cornell’s Arnot Teaching and Research Forest. Brett and his family own and operate Angus Glen Farms, LLC in Watkins Glen, NY – a 450-acre grazing operation that extensively utilizes silvopasturing. Brett’s experience with silvopasturing started in the early 1990’s while working with Argentine ranchers through the US Peace Corps.
