Low-input grazing systems highlight upcoming workshopTue, 26 Mar 2013 14:51:58 CDT
Despite continuing drought conditions in 2012, Jan Lee is able to continue managing his low-cost bermudagrass system and raise calves for gain from February to July with low input and little fertilizer usage.
To help other producers find the same success, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a grazing workshop from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday, April 23, at the Jan Lee Ranch, located at 624 E. 2070 Road in Boswell, Okla.
This workshop, which is open to the public, is designed to help agricultural producers improve both their pasture and management skills. Participants will learn how to manage a low input bermudagrass/ryegrass grazing system while achieving land stewardship and financial goals for the operation using contracted grazing stock.
"With the high cost of production, many producers have had to learn to manage their bermudagrass pastures more efficiently", said Chuck Coffey, senior pasture and range consultant. "During the workshop, Lee will discuss how he plans and manages forage production and stocking rate for optimization and efficiency."
Registration cost is $20 and includes lunch. For directions or to register, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Jackie Kelley at 580.224.6360.
