Improving Pastures Field Day

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 11 a.m.–2 p.m.

San Felipe Farm 1235 Peniel Road, Columbus, NC 28722

Polk Soil & Water Conservation District invites you to a free half-day workshop at Rafael & Mary Bravo’s farm. Join us on a walk through the pastures with Johnny Rogers, NC State Extension Associate and Coordinator of Amazing Grazing Pasture-Based Livestock Education Program, as he covers the basics of pasture management. He’ll discuss topics such as choosing the best field(s) to renovate, determining which method(s) to use, soil testing, managing stands, stockpiling, hay analysis, temporary fencing, and rotational grazing. Rafael will provide information on his personal experience with broadcast seeding versus no-till and the addition of legumes to his fields. A No-Till Drill demonstration will round out the afternoon. The Field Day includes a complimentary lunch for attendees that RSVP in advance. Come join us!

The program’s goal is to improve pasture management on private lands to ensure pastures are more resilient to future environmental challenges. Special thanks to our supporters!
