Look & Learn Pasture Walk Series
A typical Kansas pasture on a typical Kansas farm or ranch is a highly complex, species-rich ecosystem that can either be beneficial or detrimental to the producer. Differentiating between the two can be tricky, often involving experimentation as much as experience. Knowing what to look for in a pasture, healthy or otherwise, and being able to better manage that pasture is the focus of five upcoming pasture walks scattered strategically around the state. Amazing Grazing will host the walks in June and July under the facilitation of Dr. Dale Kirkham, retired range management specialist, the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, and local NRCS range specialists.
The informal nature of the discussions taking place among experts as well as other producers, will help you get different viewpoints on everything from soil health to managing livestock, and learn different management practices that might help you overcome problems particular to your own area.
There is no charge for these walks, but registration is encouraged.
