GOOD GRAZING: The program can aid producers in optimizing forage and livestock production.

Iowa State University Extension will host the final session of its Greenhorn Grazing 2018 workshops Nov. 8 at the ISU McNay Research Farm near Chariton in southern Iowa. The meeting will run from 4:30 to 9 p.m., and dinner is included. 

The Greenhorn Grazing program is a five-part series that offers an introduction to grazing management and rotational grazing practices. Program curriculum helps producers who want to optimize forage and livestock production, control production costs, and conserve natural resources.

Good topics, knowledgeable speakers

Although this meeting is part of a series, producers are welcome to attend individual sessions. Individual session registration is $15 per session, and new registrants should preregister for this final session by calling the Lucas County Extension office at 641-774-2016, or contact ISU Extension beef specialist Chris Clark at 712-250-0070 or [email protected]. Participants who have already registered and attended previous 2018 sessions do not need to register again.

Discussion topics will include optimizing winter grazing, electric fencing systems, fertility recommendations for pastures, winter beef cow nutrition and general grazing management. Iowa State Extension and Outreach specialists and industry partners will lead the topics. Please contact Clark for further information.

“Please consider joining us at this meeting as we wrap up this series for 2018," Clark says. "We have some really good topics on the agenda that will provide useful information for livestock producers."

Sponsors are Iowa Beef Center, Iowa State Extension and Lucas County Extension.
