Pollinator Plantings in Organic Pastures

September 2, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This webinar investigates how organic pasture systems have the potential to do much more than just feed livestock. If managed properly, pastures and rangeland can include many forbs (herbaceous flowering plant) – from forage legumes to wildflowers – that provide nutrients for livestock, pollen and nectar for honey bees, native bees and other pollinators, and even milkweed host plants for monarch butterflies. In this video, you will learn about how to manage the timing and intensity of grazing to both improve forage conditions on pasture, and provide benefits to pollinators. We also discuss options for inter-seeding cover crops, and other techniques for increasing the floral diversity of pasture systems.
