The 1st in our 2024 Pasture Walk Series.

During this pasture walk, we will take a look at at some areas that Dave bale grazed with the cattle this past winter, as well as some areas he bale grazed several years ago. We will discuss different tactics and techniques for bale grazing and outwintering. We will also get to see how the bale grazing has improved the soil and forage production.

Registration: Free Admission; registration requested.

About Uhren Grass Fed Beef:

Dave and Susan Uhren’s farm is 482 acres in Ottertail County, on the farm where Dave was born. His family has records of the Uhren family farming this same land all the way back to 1895! Dave, Susan, and sons got their first cattle in 2007, and started learning about adaptive rotational grazing. In 2017, they began converting 142 tillable acres back to perennials. They started out-wintering their cattle and bale grazing to improve the soil fertility. Currently running about 70 pairs of Black Angus cattle and using low-input methods for maximum profitability, they founded Uhren Grass Fed Beef in 2018 with the goal of providing their community with local, healthy, grass fed beef.
