Topic Notes

Workshop: Sheep & Grapes

A workshop about the production, soil health, and climate benefits of integrating sheep into the vineyard. Hear from Wine Country farmers as well as university and extension specialists. 

Agenda:

  • Learn about the benefits of sheep grazing on soil health and vineyard floor management, and how sheep are managed around the grape production cycle. 
  • Learn about sheep health, physiology, and management.
  • Learn how vineyard managers in California’s Wine Country have used sheep in their vineyards.
  • Learn how shepherds and ranchers provide grazing services to vineyards.

Learn about a new project that seeks to understand how sheep-vineyard systems may be utilized to increase soil health and soil organic carbon while providing multiple production benefits.
