Silvopasture Knowledge Transfer Plan

The BC Ministry of Agriculture and Food is developing a Five-Year Knowledge Transfer Plan for Silvopasture in BC. When completed, this plan will outline the priority training, demonstrations, publications, and decision support tools to help BC producers and land managers successfully plan, implement and manage silvopastures. George Powell, PAg, is under contract to coordinate the development of this plan for the Ministry.

Silvopasture is an agroforestry practice that integrates managed grazing with forage and tree production in the same land base. It blends agriculture, forestry, and conservation objectives and practices to achieve economic, social, and environmental benefits. As an integrated land use, silvopasture is an option for use in many types of livestock production, particularly in multi-use settings and with blended production-conservation goals.

Some examples include:

  • Integrating multiple resources and natural values on Crown Lands (aka forest grazing);
  • Diversifying agricultural production and market risks;
  • Improving water quality and watershed values while maintaining forest and forage production;
  • Improving the capture and use of light, water, and nutrients to make efficient use of land in small lot agriculture;
  • Offering options to create managed zones of lowered wildfire risk;
  • Both mitigating (adding carbon sinks) and adapting to a changing climate (conserving soil moisture); and,
  • Improving animal welfare by buffering and sheltering livestock from weather extremes.

If you have experience with silvopasture or are interested in learning more, we want to hear from you. Please complete a short survey and participate in a focus group. This information will help to profile silvopasture production practices and interests throughout BC and understand your motivation for using silvopasture. The surveys will allow you to rate support topics and support methods: how you prefer to learn and receive information.

More information and access to the surveys are available at: https://www.agforinsight.com/silvopasture/silvopasture-ktp/

Questions about the survey or development of a knowledge transfer plan can be directed to George Powell at (250) 983-5114
