Meadowlark Extension to host Tailgate Talk 3
Submitted by Melanie Bostwick, Meadowlark Extension District
The third in a series of Tailgate Talks for the Meadowlark Extension District is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 21.
The focus for the third talk will be water and fencing — two of the most limiting factors in grazing animals. The event will be held at the Charles and Paul Kennedy farms located in the western part of Jackson County, hosted by Luke Kennedy.
Will Boyer, water quality specialist at Kansas State University, will discuss livestock water systems and the many options that are available besides a stock pond. Boyer works out of Manhattan and covers 17 counties within the Northeast Kansas watersheds.
Rod Schaub is the Frontier District livestock agent. Schaub is a founding member of the Eastern Kansas Grazing school committee. He also does rotational grazing on his own land and has an arsenal of the latest fencing tools and gadget to show producers.
The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with a light meal sponsored by the Jackson County Conservation District. In order to plan enough meals, please RSVP by Aug. 17 to 785-364-4125 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This program is free and open to any interested persons.
