Join us at Double J Jerseys dairy farm for lunch and farmer-to-farmer conversations to learn about vole ecology and management. We will describe OSU research into canine-assisted vole trapping and discuss how you can work with your own dog. We’ll also look at raptor perches and owl boxes and discuss how to encourage these predators on your farm. This workshop includes outdoor demonstrations on uneven ground, so please dress appropriately.
