Pasture Management Session #3 of 7: Cattle Heatlh and Performance • Clay County

Thursday, Apr 3rd, 2014 @ 4:30-8:30pm
Clay Center Sale Barn • Clay Center, KS • Map

Pinkeye, Foot rot, internal and external parasites, and pneumonia can all have serious impacts on cattle performance. Water quality issues, including blue-green algae, can also create big concerns during the grazing season. Learn how to take preventative measures, or treat these problems in your cattle herd. We will also discuss how to determine stocking rates for the grazing season and how cow size can play a big role in stocking rate planning.

The 2014 Pasture Management series is designed as a complete management course for landowners and cattlemen who want to further their knowledge and skills to maintain long-term productivity of their rangelands. Each session focuses on a different topic of management and the series will provide hands-on demonstrations and tours throughout the River Valley Extension District. Cost: $60/person for entire series of meetings or $15/person for individual sessions
Prizes will be given out at each meeting and those who attend 3 or more meetings will be eligible for a Grand Prize, a $300 gift certificate to Cloud County Cooperative! (Sponsored by Cloud County Co-op)
