Grazing Presents Opportunities for Connection
When Jason Cavadini arrived March 4 at the Shell Lake Community Center the parking lot was filling quickly. Once inside the center he was greeted by an enthusiastic assortment of farmers, educators and industry professionals who share an interest in grass-based agriculture.
Cavadini is an outreach specialist with the University of Wisconsin-Division of Extension. He owns and operates a direct-market grass-fed-beef farm near Stratford, Wisconsin. He was in Shell Lake to share his experience with winter-bale grazing, to the attendees of the Northwest Wisconsin Winter Grazing Conference.
“We’re basically an organization that depends on volunteerism,” said Lynn Johnson, who has been a key element in organizing the conference since 2017. “We depend on collaboration with other organizations to make our conference successful.”
