Teaching VT Sheep to Eat Bedstraw

Kathy Voth and Kimberly Hagen
News from the field!

Here's farmer and grant participant Kimberly Hagen teaching her sheep to eat smooth bedstraw, a notorious plant in Vermont.  Think your animals won't eat it?  This technique has worked on all different types of ruminant animals, with differently sized herds and with different weeds.  It can work for you.

Call us if you'd like to learn more...we have a project underway right now and are happy to help!
