Event Description
[Bradford County] Join PASA and dairy farmer John Meglich at his Little Crick Farm on Tuesday, August 1, for a tour of John’s 100% grass-fed, certified organic dairy farm. John will focus on his use of summer annuals in his grazing system, especially the use of corn. John has been experimenting with grazing corn for years and has developed both no-till and conventional tillage systems for incorporating this high tonnage forage into his grazing regime. Challenges and benefits of these techniques will be explored, and this year’s early plantings will be assessed. John will also touch on his use of oats, cow peas, and turnips in his grazing mix. The tour will conclude with a free BBQ lunch at the farmhouse.

This is an excellent event for the experience grazier, as well as the beginner and those curious. Further questions should contact Aaron de Long at aaron@pasafarming.org.
