Don't Miss Out on the These Essential Solar Grazing Resources
Each month, the American Solar Grazing Association invites experienced graziers, sheep experts, solar companies, and top researchers to lead lively discussions on the latest developments in solar grazing at our virtual events.
We record each session and publish the replays on our ASGA members network.
Since 2018, ASGA continuously adds to an extensive resource library on solar grazing topics. Our Virtual events cover a wide-range of topics, including:
Targeted grazing resources and vegetation management
Managing large-scale grazing operations
Ecosystem impacts and the latest agrivolatics research
In-depth discussions with solar companies on site management and where the industry is going
ASGA members have exclusive access to our library of solar grazing recordings, as well as additional members-only virtual events each month.
Check out recent examples of some of our most popular events below and consider joining ASGA to take advantage of our resources and member events:

Making large-site solar grazing work in California and Texas
What does it take to manage a utility scale grazing operation and how do you get started? What are the roadblocks and what are the success stories? ASGA members JR Howard, Ryan Indart, and Chad Raines participated in this informative panel discussion on utility-scale solar grazing and how to scale up grazing. Over 100 people joined this webinar to learn about the challenges and opportunities involved in large-site grazing.

Everything you need to know about Katahdins
From a ASGA member event, Tom Hodgman discusses how Katahdins are well-suited for low input grazing programs and gives us an overview of the history and current state of the breed, including recent research, genetic improvements through the National Sheep Improvement Program (NSIP) and why Katahdins' popularity has surged among producers. ASGA Board Member Caroline Owens co-hosted and talked about her great experiences raising Katahdins for solar grazing.

The Future of the lamb market and solar grazing
The incredible expansion of solar sites and the demand for grazing will likely bring about an unprecedented growth in domestic sheep production and expansion into new regions of the U.S. In order to prepare for the future of solar grazing, farmers will need to wrestle with a number of complex questions about the future of the lamb market and sheep supply.
For this ASGA member event, we brought together sheep industry experts in a moderated discussion to help us understand the current market and discuss its future.
