Maryland Grazing School

September 21st – 22nd 8 AM to 5PM

Maryland Research and Education Center

Keedysville, Maryland

University of Maryland Extension and partners are excited to be bringing back the Maryland Grazing School this fall and invite grazers and livestock owners to attend!

The Maryland Grazing School will be held over two days on September 21-22, 2023, at the Western Maryland Research and Education Center in Keedysville, MD from 8 AM to 5 PM each day. Designed with producer interests in mind, this 2-day grazing school will offer a more in-depth education on pasture and grazing management.

The course features multiple hands-on exercises to provide participants with opportunities to work with grazing tools and fencing materials. Topics covered will include forage selection, pasture assessment, grazing management, pasture allocation, fencing and watering options, extending the grazing season, and more! Enrollment is limited to 30 people to keep the group small and allow for more interaction and networking opportunities. For full details and registration information, please visit

This event is brought to you in partnership by University of Maryland Extension, the Maryland-Delaware Forage Council, Maryland Grazers Network, NRCS, and NE SARE. Thank you to our event partners!
