Beating the heat and summer slump were the big topics at the most recent Kentucky Grazing School held August 9-10 in Versailles, Kentucky.

Forty-one participants came to learn more about rotational grazing, portable fence and water systems, the growth of grasses and legumes and how to extend the grazing season.

Participants had the opportunity to use various tools in measuring forage availability and saw first-hand how paddock size and shape impacts forage utilization.
