Organic Farmer Researcher Network: Climate Resilient Silvopasture

Climate Resilient Silvopasture Project in Ross County

Animal heat stress stands to become a more common problem as our average temperatures and weather extremes increase. Charlie Eselgroth, an organic dairy farmer in Ross County, Ohio, has been working with Rural Action to add trees and raised solar panels to his pasture land. The trees are intended to create shaded grazing areas that can be used on a rotational basis for relief from heat stress and to provide additional feed. This project is in its early stages. It’s being done in conjunction with Organic Valley dairy cooperatives new carbon insetting program. We’d love to share discussion about this project with our group of farmers, educators, and researchers. Please bring your questions, ideas, and resources and join the Rural Action team in collaborative learning and thinking on February 2.
