Workshop: Holistic Cattle Health and Handling

June 19, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Are you raising grass-fed cattle? Interested in transitioning? Come learn with organic grass-fed cattle farmer Matt Koziol!

Matt will discuss what farmers need to know to keep their animals healthy and productive. Starting with the nutritional requirements for livestock, particular attention will be paid to reading and responding to cattle behavior in order to reduce stress for both cow and farmer.

Matt will take us out into the pastures to demonstrate a live cattle round-up with a focus on proper technique and efficiency. He’ll also show the inner workings of his cattle handling facility, covering when and why farmers need to handle livestock. There will be plenty of time for questions about his certified organic 100% grass-fed beef business.

There will be an optional potluck prior to the event from 12 PM – 1 PM.

About the Instructor:

Matthew Koziol is the farmer at Clover Spring Farm, where he raises 150 high quality Devon and Devon/Angus cattle. All of his animals are 100% organic and grass-fed. Read more about Clover Springs Farm here.
