Dairy Grazing Pasture Walk

Where: Guell Farm, N3685 Nitchell Road, Campbellsport, WI 53010
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
As we tour this phenomenal dairy grazing farm, the Guell’s will explain: overall farm management; successful seeding techniques they’ve used to develop and maintain productive pasture swards; techniques used to manage Orchard Grass. Orchard Grass can be prolific grazing forage, but needs timely management to be a palatable feed. These experienced experts will explain how they’ve accomplished this over the years.
Bill Guell is a board director for the Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship (DGA) Program. He and his brother, Bob, are also Master Graziers for the DGA. Kyle Serwe, DGA graduate, is now a farming partner at the Guell Farm. Join in to learn more about the DGA and how this program successfully trains beginning dairy farmers to be successful dairy graziers and business operators!
Whether you are a beginning or experienced grazing farmer or a confinement farmer looking for more flexibility and financial security in your livestock production, you’ll be sure to go home with knowledge that will better your farm! There will be lots of opportunity for questions, networking with existing graziers, and good conversation, so be sure to attend!
