Beef cow/pasture walk, Sept. 10

Sept. 5, 2013 | 0 comments

A beef cow/calf pasture walk is slated Sept. 10, from 6-8 p.m. at the Bill Kolodziej Farm, 401 Dewey Drive Stevens Point.

Kolodziej has developed test plots to evaluate organic and non-organic soil treatments to increase yield and to allow grazing further into the fall.

An organic treatment, RyzUp, and fertilizer treatments of urea, ammonium sulfate, and three mixtures of macro and micro nutrients were applied spring and fall of 2012 and 2013.

Along with pasture treatments, Kolodziej has been improving his animal handling facilities with a new low-cost, one-person, working chute with a year-round waterer off the grid.

He currently runs approximately 35 beef cow/calf pairs with plans of expanding the herd.

The cattle are rotationally grazed through the primary 32 acres until the pastures go into summer dormancy, at which time they are moved to the additional fenced area on the adjoining land.

From Stevens Point, take I39 north to Casimir Road, turn right, 1/8 mile east to 2nd Drive, turn left, three miles north to Cty X, turn right, ¾ mile north to Dewey Drive, turn right, ½ mile east to 401 Dewey Drive. Watch for signs.

From Wausau, I39 south to Cty DB, turn left, two miles east to Cty X, turn right, five miles to Dewey Drive, turn left, ½ mile east to 401 Dewey Drive. Watch for signs.

The event is free and no pre-registration is necessary. Those attending should dress weather-appropriate.

For more information contact Teal Fyksen, grazing specialist), 715-321-2929 (cell) or teal.fyksen@goldensandsrcd.org.
