This workshop will provide female farmers with skills in pasture management and grazing management. Women cattle producers will learn best-management techniques for fencing and pasture management. The workshop will cover annual and perennial forages to maximize year round ground cover, water filtration, and how to minimize the use of herbicides, fertilizer, and fuel and machine use.

A hands-on session for female farmers will include how to set up fences, troubleshooting fencing problems such as electric fence repair, as well as installing and moving temporary fencing. Participants will learn the key role that portable fencing can play in training cattle during pasture management.
