Our pasture walks are normally held on the fourth Thursday of the month April through October on various farms throughout Carroll, Columbiana, Harrison, Jefferson, Mahoning and Tuscarawas counties. In January, February and March, we host winter workshops. Anyone interested in the conservation of our soil and water through growing and grazing forages is encouraged to attend the monthly meetings. The Eastern Ohio Grazing Council strives to promote the conservation of our soil and water by growing and grazing forages and serve as advocates for sustainable and environmentally sound grazing practices. If you would like to attend any of the 2017 events you can contact the Carroll SWCD at 330-627-9852 to be placed on the mailing list.
