Grazing mentorship offered

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Sustainable Grazing Mentorship Program (SGMP) assists producers in improving their forage operations through training. Experienced grazing mentors work directly with producers for either eight or 16 hours to develop a grazing plan tailored to the needs of the producer.

A grazing mentor is a respected producer peer with extensive grazing management experience and knowledge. A mentor can suggest grazing management options to help a producer improve profits, forage productivity, and land and water resources.

The producer can pay $100 and the program will pay the balance for the grazing mentor’s mentoring and travel expenses. Approximately 16 hours of mentorship will be provided. Alternatively, the producer pays $50 and the program pays the grazing mentor’s mentoring and travel expenses for eight hours of mentorship.

The third option is for four to six producers to meet for a six-hour group session with a mentor. You pay $30 per person and the program pays the balance for the mentor’s mentoring and travel expenses.
