Alabama Grazing Clinic

Alabama Grazing Clinics are one-day grazing management workshops that were developed to provide the latest information and instruction on grazing management to Alabama livestock producers. The clinics provide instruction and outdoor exercises designed to educate participants in the principles of grazing management. Topics are listed below. The Alabama Forage and Grassland Coalition sponsors the school, which was organized to promote improved forage quality and grazing practices.

Alabama Grazing Clinics are held at various locations and on various dates throughout the year. Check with your Alabama County or Regional Agricultural Extension Agent for details about upcoming clinics.


The cost of the 2013 one day Alabama Grazing Clinic is $75 per person. This fee includes a copy of the grazing manual, a forage measuring stick, the book Southern Forages, and other educational materials as well as lunch and break refreshments.

Registration is on a first-come basis and is limited. Cancellations must be made 10 days prior to the session to receive a refund of the deposit. A reservation will be held only by a completed registration form and a paid deposit.
