Resources on combining livestock and tree production

“Silvopasture” is the combination of growing trees, forage and livestock together.  The USDA National Agroforestry Center has put together a great list of resources online that describe how silvopasture works and what things agricultural producers need to consider if they are thinking about converting.  There are also some useful worksheets that help you determine if this is right for you.  You can access the list at http://nac.unl.edu/practices/silvopasture.htm.
