Pasture Topics Discussion

March 14 @ 2:00 pm

Farmers can improve their knowledge of current pasture topics by attending a “Pasture Topics Discussion” at the ISU Extension and Outreach- Mahaska County office, 212 North I Street, Oskaloosa.

The Pasture Topics Discussion, hosted by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach – Mahaska County, is intended to provide producers with tips and tricks to enhance their grazing programs this grazing season. With the dry conditions in 2023, many pastures were overgrazed and forages are in tight supply. This meeting will focus on how producers can help pastures recover and boost forage production in 2024. Topics to be discussed will include pasture renovation, fertilization, weed management strategies, grazing systems and calendars, and grazing leases/rental agreements.  Extension specialists attending include Rebecca Vittetoe, Agronomist; Patrick Wall, Beef; and Charles Brown, Farm Management.

“The discussion topics will offer a great opportunity to those wanting to refresh their knowledge, as well as those new to grazing,” said Vittetoe.

There is no cost to attend, but registration is requested by March 11.  The doors will open at 1 p.m., with the program beginning at 2 p.m.  The program is planned to last 90 minutes.  To register, call 641-673-5841 or email [email protected].
