Extension schedules pasture meeting at Garnett

Frontier Extension District will host an educational meeting, “Grazing Opportunities and Pasture Management” 7-9 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, 2018, at the Garnett Community Building at the Anderson County fairgrounds, in Garnett. The meeting will cover many current issues facing local producers and their pasture lands.

Topics will be of concern to both native warm season and cool season pasture owners, including fall burning of sericea lespedeza; controlling woody plant species in grasslands; Old World Bluestem, identification and control; fescue seed head suppression; and using cover crops to keep cattle grazing.
