Winter in central Appalachia is harsh and can stress the region’s livestock. AFSRC scientists are developing small-scale ruminant production systems for the humid temperate Appalachian Region by managing interactions among forages, environment, and grazers. Adequate nutritional supplies of stockpiled forages will relieve the stress on small ruminants carried over winter.
