Build Your Grazing Plan
(10:00 AM - 03:00 PM)

 

Build Your Own Grazing Plan Kick Off and Orientation

 

This 7-week class will be primarily conducted through an online learning program with three in-person sessions from September 16 through October 31. It is designed for farms that graze ruminant animals (cows, sheep, goats, and camelids) and want to maximize their pasture production through managed grazing.

 

We will take you through the process of writing a grazing plan. As a participant, you will complete the class with a functional grazing plan for YOUR farm and understand the principles behind it. This allows you to make changes to your plan when needed. Additionally, we will be writing these plans to include all the criteria needed for submission to NH NRCS for assistance through the EQIP program.

 

The class will be self-paced with online assignments to be completed each week. Daimon Meeh will be available with online office hours to assist with any questions. We will be using an online learning system similar in structure to an online forum, and it is our intent that there will be helpful interactions between the participants during the class.

 

The class schedule begins September 16 and runs as follows: Week 1: Mapping the Farm; Week 2: Finding Your Soil Types; Week 3: Forage Inventory; Week 4: Animal Nutritional Needs; Week 5: Developing Rotation Plan and Fencing Class; Week 6: Goal Setting and Implementation Schedule; Week 7: Operation Maintenance Plan. There will also be three in person meetings: Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. - Kick off and Orientation at the NH Audubon Center, 84 Silk Farm Road in Concord; Oct. 2 from 5 to 7 p.m. - Forage Identification and Inventory at Normanton Farms, 226 Charles Bancroft Hwy in Litchfield; and Oct. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. - Fencing Options, also at Normanton Farms.

Stormwater Best Management Practices Technology Demonstration Workshop
(09:00 AM - 02:00 PM)

This workshop provides a general overview of the present and future standards of stormwater management. UNHSC research addresses the overall performance and effectiveness of a variety of stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) to control water quantity and treat water quality. To date the UNHSC has researched over 24 different BMPs ranging from conventional ponds to manufactured subsurface filters to broad array of Low Impact Development (or Green Infrastructure) practices.

 

In August of 2004, the UNHSC field research facility came online. This field research facility serves as both a site for testing stormwater treatment processes as well as for technology demonstrations. The testing results and technology demonstrations are meant to assist in the planning, design, and implementation of stormwater management strategies. Topics covered include water quantity control (peak flow reduction, system lag time, and potential for infiltration), water quality treatment effectiveness (sediment, nutrients, metals, hydrocarbons, and/or microorganisms), as well as brief overviews of emergent topics such as system maintenance, thermal buffering, and cold climate related issues.
