A July 7 field day will be held to inform cattle, horse and sheep producers about research-based methods for improving pasture health, soil quality and livestock management. It will take place at the West Virginia University (WVU) Reedsville Experiment Farm near Reedsville, WV.
WVU researchers and Extension specialists will share their findings on topics that include GPS tractor guidance for applying manure or fertilizer, the impact of different grazing systems and livestock type on pasture productivity, growth responses to winter and early spring grazing, pasture soil testing and rotational grazing for horses.
Registration for the 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. event is free and includes a beef and lamb lunch. To register, call Ben Nemeth at 304-997-2662 by June 27. For more information, visit here.
