What are the benefits of year-round grazing of sheep, or other livestock, in vineyards (and beyond)? Recent research has shown incredible benefits of using sheep year-round in properly designed/retrofitted vineyards, including increased net profitability per acre from the vineyard as well as the livestock, increased soil fertility, and reduced labor costs as well as fewer tractor passes, elimination of tillage and reduced needs for fertilizer. We are please to have Kelly Mulville of Paicines Ranch and Holistic Management International Certified Educator as our presenter. Although the focus will be on sheep in vineyards, the ideas may be expanded to other livestock species and crops.
