From the organizers:
Description: FACT and the American Solar Grazing Association are teaming up to offer a free hour-long webinar on Solar Grazing. Solar arrays need vegetation management, and solar grazing is the practice of using livestock (primarily sheep) to manage this vegetation. This webinar will cover the research done to date on this innovative approach, and how sheep producers and solar site operators can put solar grazing system in place. Join us to learn to find out more about the animal welfare, economic, and environmental benefits of this practice!
Solar Grazing is the practice of grazing livestock – most often sheep – on solar farms. When sheep graze solar sites they improve their own health by grazing fresh pastures that offer plenty of shade and protection from the elements. It also helps to keep farmland in production and reduces the need to mow at solar sites. Lexie Hain of Two Mothers Farm and Agrivoltaic Solutions, along with several founding members of the American Solar Grazing Association, will share more about this innovative approach.
