Silvopasture is a unique agroforestry system combining principles of forestry, forage production, and livestock grazing to produce wood products, superior forage, and healthy livestock simultaneously. Learn all about the unique ways this system can fit your needs on your forest or grazing land. For land managers, learn about a unique system that can benefit your clientele and meet their needs. Continuing Forestry Education credits are being offered for forestry professionals needing to meet recertification requirements. Mr. George C. Owens is a nationally recognized silvopasture producer and has graciously offered to open his property for a tour of his outstanding operations. Prior to the field tour we will have an outstanding series of presentations and a forum discussion lead by County Agents: Ian Stone (Forestry Walton), Mark Mauldin (Washington) Jenifer Bearden (Okaloosa) and Nick Simmons (Escambia).

All this and a catered lunch for $25/person. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the ways this agroforestry system can benefit you and how to meet challenges of management and avoid pitfalls. The team hopes to see you there.  Meeting location:  Washington County Ag Center – 1424 Jackson Avenue (Hwy 90) Chipley, FL
