UGA Forage Extension Team

Meet the Newest UGA Grass Masters Graduates

The UGA Forage Team recently hosted the UGA GrassMasters series for Northeast Georgia at the UGA Livestock Instructional Arena in Athens. This was the second such program hosted by the Forage Team as part of a partnership with the Natural Resource Conservation Service. The goal of the program is to provide a more intensive series of classes focused on introduction-level forage production information. The NE GA program was attended by twenty five participants from eleven counties who received certificates for attending at least five of the seven classes. Participants also received a notebook with handouts and reference materials, a copy of “Management Intensive Grazing,” and a grazing stick. Plans are to host at least two GrassMasters programs across the state each year.
