The Grady County Conservation District, in conjunction with the Oklahoma Conservation Commission and USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, is hosting a Soil Health Field Day on Friday August 31st, 2018. The workshop will be held at Oscar Nelson’s headquarters just outside of Chickasha. The workshop is free to the public.
Registration begins at 8:30 AM. The Field Day should conclude around noon. Topics to be discussed include cover crops and incorporating grazing management. Attendees will also have the opportunity to see the rainfall simulator. Speakers for the event include Oklahoma Conservation Commission Soil Scientist Greg Scott, Oklahoma Conservation Commission Soil Health Educator Blane Stacy, and local farmers Oscar Nelson and Paul Brown.
Soil Health Field Days are great networking opportunities for area farmers and ranchers to gain knowledge from each other and professionals for more sustainable operations. These field days are also great opportunities for the public to visit a local farm and see how and where some of their food is grown.
Oscar Nelson’s farm headquarters is located at County Road 1330 and County Street 2810. For more information contact Kim Walker at 405-224-1381 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
