A forage webinar on the reduction of winter feeding by stockpiling warm-season forages and/or planting cool-season pastures will be hosted on Aug. 21 by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service experts.
“Planning ahead and looking at the economics of all options is important to every producer's bottom line,” said Vanessa Corriher-Olson, AgriLife Extension forage specialist. “Whether you’re forgoing a late-season cutting to stockpile grazing forages or considering cool-season forage options, this webinar can help you avoid unnecessary costs and maximize production efficiency.”
The program will be presented by Corriher-Olson, and Jason Banta, AgriLife Extension beef cattle specialist, both in Overton.
