Summer Field School Class #5: Rotational Grazing and Cattle Work

July 7 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

Darrell Wess and family started Valor Valley Farm in 2017 as a cow/calf operation. They have specialties in good land stewardship, quality cattle, and environmental conservation and sell at livestock markets and to other producers. Join us at the farm for a class on rotational grazing and cattle work to gain knowledge on production methods for better land and cattle, tools of the trade, and helpful resources available to begin your own cattle operation. Darrell has served as a FARM Mentor and shares some insightful information for beginning farmers; “Don’t be afraid to try new things and experiment with what works for you and your farm. Get out and tag along with other farmers doing things you’d like to implement. For anyone considering adding cattle to their farm the importance of animal health with a quality working pen is crucial. It ensures your animals and your safety in times of needed care or preventative protocols.”
