Pasture Walk Series to Begin in Otter Tail County

It’s safe to say that spring is here (although, you never know in Minnesota), and we are excited to be kicking off our season of pasture tomorrow!

On the fourth Thursday of each month, SFA will host an engaging pasture walk with a specific focus at various Minnesota farms. All of the walks will be free to attend, and some will include a potluck.

Our first walk will be on Thursday, April 25 from 5:30-7:30 at Uhren Grass Fed Beef in Vining, Minnesota. We will take a look at some areas that Dave bale grazed with the cattle this past winter, as well as some areas he bale grazed several years ago. Discussion will follow on 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!

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 Grassfed Beef in 2018 with the goal of providing their community with local, healthy, grass fed beef.

Address: 18547 County Highway 59, Vining, MN (Look for the SFA signs!)
