Mud and Manure Management - Part 1

Douglas County

Thursday, September 7, 2017 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The rainy season will be here soon and livestock in small pastures, paddocks, or other confined spaces benefit from proper management of mud and manure. Now is the time to identify those areas that need treatment, such as high traffic areas and roof drip lines. If you want to reduce mud around your cattle, sheep, horse, or other livestock pastures this year, you don’t want to miss this class. Composting and fertilizer values of manure will also be discussed. The second session is a hands-on workshop where participants will see how to improve drainage around a barn.

A two-session class:

Part 1 - Evening educational program on Thursday, September 7, 6:00 – 9:00 pm, Lookingglass Grange Hall, 7426 Lookingglass Rd, Roseburg, OR 97471
Refreshments will be provided.

Part 2 - Morning practical program (work session) on Friday, September 8, 9:00 am – noon, Local Ranch in Lookingglass
