Logo: Maryland Grazers Network  The Maryland Grazers Network is a mentorship program that pairs experienced livestock, dairy, sheep, and poultry producers with farmers who want to learn new grazing skills. The Grazers Network Project Team provides technical assistance and includes experts in pasture and forage management, financial management, marketing, and funding resources. Developed by Clagett Farm and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Network is a collaboration of CBF, University of Maryland Extension, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
