Pasture & Livestock Management Field Day
Come out and join us on September 27, 2018, for the Second Tri-County Pasture Field Day. The event will begin at 9 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. Several stations are being planned and participants will rotate through those stations. Topics to be covered include Sprayer Calibration and Safety; On-Farm Energy Use and Efficiency; Proper Hay Storage and Feeding; and Multi-Species Grazing Habits and Considerations. The event will be held at Rogers Cattle Company at 945 Woodsdale Rd. Roxboro, NC. Lunch will be served for those that register. Plans are in the works (but not finalized yet) for an optional Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV or drone) Demonstration planned for 3:00 p.m. for anyone that wants to see how these devices might fit into production agriculture. Details are still being finalized and you will need to RSVP so we can prepare for lunch. This is a field day and participants should expect moderate walking and you may want to bring your own chair. The event is being planned by North Carolina Cooperative Extension and Soil and Water offices in Durham, Orange, and Person Counties. View the event flyer, register online, or call 919-560-0558.
