Extension offers April 4 cool-season forage tour

MSU Extension Service

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Cattle producers in the North Mississippi area are invited to the Mississippi State University campus April 4 for an evening cool-season forage tour.

The event will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. at MSU’s Henry H. Leveck Research Farm, sometimes called South Farm. It is sponsored by the MSU Extension Service and the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station.

Topics to be discussed include weed control practices, alfalfa establishment in bahiagrass, grazing systems using small grains or legumes, and the impact of tall fescue establishment. Participants will also receive data from the MSU forage performance trials.

This free event is open to the public, but early registration is encouraged to allow organizers to plan for the meal. Registration begins at 4:30 p.m. Participants should gather at the forage unit of the farm. Follow signs that will be posted at the intersection of Blackjack Road and Stone Boulevard on the MSU campus.

To register or for more information, contact Kathy Johnson, event coordinator, at or 662-325-2701.
