Noble Foundation Workshop Focuses on Winter Pasture, Grazing TechnologiesThu, 26 Mar 2015 11:37:41 CDT
The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Spring Grazing Workshop from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, April 7, at the Noble Foundation Pasture Demonstration Farm in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
This workshop, which is open to the public, will demonstrate applicable grazing technologies such as Batt Latch and forage mass estimation. Attendees will also learn about the new forage and grazing research projects being done at the Noble Foundation.
Small grain winter pasture is high quality forage often grazed by stocker cattle through the spring. Technologies available today provide more efficient means to manage stocking rates. "We want to show producers the technologies available that will allow them to make management decisions from a computer," said James Rogers, Ph.D., Noble Foundation assistant professor. "We also want to give them more information on soil health, one of the most pressing topics in production agriculture today."
Agricultural economists from Oklahoma State University will discuss the forage insurance program and how it works. Noble Foundation soils and crops consultants will discuss soil health, rainfall and soil runoff, and minimizing urea volatility losses.
The registration fee is $20, and lunch will be provided. For more information or to register, by clicking here or by contacting Maggie Scott at 580.224.6375.
