Have you ever stopped to think about what your cattle are grazing? Do they just eat grass? Would you like to know how to read your pasture like the label on that sack of cubes? Come join us on September the 4th @ 6:30 pm as we walk the cattle ranges of the Mashed O Ranch in southern Morris County. On this walk, we will observe the plants eaten by cattle, discuss their nutritional qualities, and talk about ways to manage for the right diversity of plants. Three groups will be led by Doug Spencer and Alex Miller of the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and Mike Holder from K-State Research and Extension. When traveling from Council Grove, drive 9 miles south on Hwy 177 to Rd DD and then turn east on Rd DD, cross the cattle guard, and then follow the open range road 1 mile till it turns north. Continue driving north until you see the trucks on the side of the road. Refreshments and sponsorship is provided by the Morris and Chase Co. Conservation Districts, and KSU Extension. To RSVP, please call Flint Hills Extension- Morris County @ 620-767-5136.
