CEDARBLUFF, Miss. – The Mississippi State University Extension Service invites producers to a field day highlighting stewardship in cattle grazing systems on June 23.
The Stewardship in Grazing Systems Field Day will be held at High Hope Farm in Cedarbluff from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will highlight conservation strategies that can be applied in small and diverse farm systems.
MSU Extension forage specialist Rocky Lemus and Billy Kingery, a professor of agronomy in the MSU Department of Plant and Soil Sciences, will be on hand to discuss forage and grazing, soil management, soil health and assessment tools, watershed conservation, and forest management.
