Noble Foundation Tour Focuses on Wildlife Management for Small Properties

The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Basic AG Small Farm Field Day from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Friday, Oct. 24, at the Noble Foundation McMillan Farm-East (located at 14797 McMillan Road, Madill, Okla.).

This field day will demonstrate several mechanical and chemical techniques for controlling brush encroachment. Wildlife consultants will discuss the role prescribed fire has on brush control, as well as discuss how different plant species respond to various control methods.

“Many landowners think it is difficult to impact wildlife and habitat on small properties,” said Will Moseley, Noble Foundation wildlife consultant. “This workshop will demonstrate how all landowners can benefit many different wildlife species through proper management of their resources.”

The Noble Foundation's Basic AG is an educational program to benefit those new to agriculture or those wanting to develop additional skills. The series provides practical, foundational knowledge that can be used in everyday operations. "While the seminars target those just entering the agricultural industry, anyone can attend,” said Hugh Aljoe, Noble Foundation consultation program manager. “The information gained can be applied to many agricultural production scenarios or situations."

The events offer information and provide new tools to achieve specific agriculture-related goals. Basic AG events will frequently incorporate speakers from state and federal agricultural organizations, as well as the occasional hands-on experience.

"The Noble Foundation's Basic AG program provides quality, timely information presented in a clear and concise format," Aljoe said. "Each event, including the upcoming workshop, offers attendees plenty of time to ask questions and visit with the experts. Each event holds the potential to immediately enhance a new producer's operation."

This field tour is open to the public and offered at no cost, but preregistration is required. For more information or to register, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Jackie Kelley at 580.224.6360.
