Virginia Tech Researchers Test the Sustainable Ag Benefits of Mob Stocking- in Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education

BLACKSBURG, Virginia– Researchers at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University are looking at the environmental impacts of a relatively new grazing system that is gaining popularity across the country for its perceived production and land management benefits.

Emily Williams, a graduate student in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering, received a two-year Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SSARE) Graduate Student Grant to study water quality of runoff and nutrient losses in mob stocking, compared to continuous and rotational grazing systems.
