Upcoming Noble Foundation Field Day Focuses on Wildlife ManagementFri, 09 Oct 2015 11:34:18 CDT
The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Basic AG Field Day from 9 a.m. to noon, Friday, Oct. 23, at the Noble Foundation McMillan East Farm, located in Madill, Oklahoma.
This field day will demonstrate several wildlife management techniques. Wildlife consultants will discuss the impact of prescribed fire, grazing, woodland thinning and food plots on wildlife species. There will also be a plant walk to identify plants important to wildlife.
“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 independent of the size of their property.”
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 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 day is open to the public at no cost, but preregistration is required. For directions, more information or to register, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Maggie Scott at 580.224.6375.
