Description

This class is an opportunity for interested farmers to learn first-hand how to integrate a pastured hog operation into their farm. Focused on nutrition and forage management, serious farmers will gain the knowledge they need to begin setting the foundations of a successful organic hog herd.

A pasture-based production system is a very cost-effective method of meat production and is appealing to consumers who look for high quality meat from humanely treated animals. Grazing hogs on pasture not only benefits the animals but also improves the overall farm, as hogs will clean up weather-damaged crops and weed species, fertilize pastures/fields with manure, and can even be used to “till up” underproductive areas.
