Kevin and Keely Oppermann are co-hosting a pasture walk with DNR wildlife technician Heidi Hayes and biologist Julie Widholm on the use of rotational grazing to improve wildlife habitat at Hook Lake Wildlife Area.
Kevin & Keely operate a cow-calf grass-fed beef operation with Scottish Highland cattle. They have used the Scottish Highlands to clear woody brush species on their farm, and are bringing their expertise to the second year of grazing management at Hook Lake.
Learn about applying grazing to increase plant diversity and benefit grassland bird species, suppress woody shrubs and invasive plants, reduce reliance on costly mechanical- and chemical-management methods, and to foster partnerships with neighbors and the agricultural community.
