Getting the Best out of Pasture and Hay Ground Series (Douglas County) Jan 18 to March 15, 2018

1 - Productivity, 2 - Fertilizing, 3 - Weeds, 4- Renovation, 5 - Hay/Grazing Management

Thursday, February 15, 2018 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Pasture and hayground inputs and management are costly activities. Strategic methods can help you get the most out of your inputs. This program covers the basics of assessing pasture and hay ground, as well as advanced concepts in management to fit your goals. Participants will be guided through custom assessments of their own land. Sign up for one or more of these classes for information on agronomic-economic approaches to your forage production and harvest management. We intend to have some field trips and producers/agency folks to share how this information has helped them.
