Mini Grazing School to be offered
The Meadowlark Extension District will be conducting a mini grazing school in a series of events throughout the summer of 2018. These “mini” schools will be held in Jackson County and hosted by Charles and Paul Kennedy Farms.
The Mini Grazing School series provides a hands-on experience for those interested in starting or improving grazing management. Grazing School attendees can expect to learn a variety of tools and subsequently choose to integrate the methods that are most suitable for their particular grazing system. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to work with Kansas State University (KSU) experts along with the local NRCS Range Conservationist and District Conservationist.
The first of the multi-session series will be held on Tuesday evening, May 22, beginning at 5:30 p.m., at the Kennedy pasture located 3-3/4 miles south of Highway 16 on K Road (watch for signs). Topics will include: Measure to Manage — using a grazing stick to measure pasture production; Pasture Plant Identification, and Planning Ahead — a focus on evaluation of your grazing plan as we head in to summer.
For meal count purposes, please RSVP through the Holton Office of the Meadowlark Extension District at 785-364-4125 by noon on Monday, May 21. For further information or questions, contact the Office or e-mail Jody Holthaus firstname.lastname@example.org or David Hallauer at email@example.com .
All events are open to the public.
