Landowner resources

NRCS Vermont supports landowners with diverse grassland management programs that balance management and bird needs.  These programs range for all management needs from early-haying for dairy farmers, to rotational-grazing, to late-haying. Importantly, these programs are based on the science produced in our long-term grassland bird program (for early-haying see Perlut_Strong_Alexander_JWM_2011; for rotational-grazing see Perlut & Strong JWM 2011).
