Key Programs

Small Acreage Management (SAM) Program

How do I set up a grazing management plan?  How do I deal with the weeds in my pasture?  How much forage can I expect to produce on my property?  If you have these questions or others about your small acreage, the SAM program can assist you.  We can provide advice on pasture management, weed management and other issues commonly encountered by small acreage owners.
