Grazing school, Sept. 12-13
A two-day grazing school will be held Sept. 12-13 at the Lake City Research Center, 5401 W. Jennings Rd., Lake City, MI.
Michigan State University Extension specialists will talk about proper grazing management being one of the easiest ways that livestock and dairy producers can increase on-farm profitability.
The school will blend classroom-style instruction, hands-on education and producer testimonials to give participants a well-rounded course in grazing management techniques.
Topics include an introductory overview of managed grazing to livestock nutrition, plant growth, forage quality and species selection, determining yield and allocating pasture, and identifying forage species.
The school will begin at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 12 and conclude at 4 p.m. Sept. 13.
The cost of $100 includes meeting materials and meals. A second participant from the same farm costs $50.
Registrations can be sent by Sept. 5 to: Jason Rowntree, Michigan State University, Dept. of Animal Science, 474 S. Shaw Lane, East Lansing, MI 48824.
