Now in its fourth year, the Mountains-to-Bay Grazing Alliance brings together private and public partners to increase the number of pasture-based livestock operations in the Bay watershed portions of Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. The program connects current and new grazing farmers, providing outreach and technical assistance in the form of farmer-to-farmer mentoring, on-farm demonstrations, a quarterly newsletter, and other peer-to-peer experiences.
Recent funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation will support these activities, as well as the Alliance’s 2021 goals to
- convert 1,700 acres to rotational grazing and
- implement related practices such as forested buffers and livestock stream exclusion.
