Learning and Sharing Silvopasture

Keefe Keeley - Thursday, February 25, 2016

If trees + prairie + animals = Savanna AND trees + forage + livestock = Silvopasture, can silvopasture mimic native savannas?   We are working with farmers to to find out, and share what we learn with you.


Savanna Institute has been awarded a grant about the USDA to cooperate intensively with four farms on planting and protecting trees in pastures.  We'll be studying what works well, what it costs, the labor involved, with field days and bulletins to share what we learn.   And we'll podcast interviews with experienced silvopastoralists. We're excited about this.


But we're also not waiting around to get the word out about silvopasture.  Check out this article by Keefe
