Is Grazing Sheep Beneath Solar Arrays and Opportunity for Your Future?

Livingston County Murray Hill office campus
Mt. Morris, NY

Is Grazing Sheep Beneath Solar Arrays and Opportunity for Your Future?

Grazing sheep beneath utility-scale solar arrays can build wealth of present and future sheep farmers as vegetation management service providers and access to additional pasture. The Cornell Cooperative Enterprise Program (CEP) conducted a survey earlier this year completed by over 600 farmers. Farmers identified barriers to grazing sheep under solar arrays and weighed in on need for a producer-led organization to negotiate contracts on their behalf, coordinate logistics of multiple flocks, provide transport of sheep to and from the site, care for sheep while on-site, and provide supplemental mowing. Additional questions focused on processing and marketing needs.
