CCE’s Hay and Pasture School upcoming

Posted

Cornell Cooperative Extension’s annual Hay and Pasture School will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on two nights, Thursdays March 17 and 24.

The sessions will be presented as online webinars each night.

Part 1 on March 17 will cover some basics of pasture management. Kitty O’Neil, soil and field crop specialist on the North Country Regional Ag Team, will talk about grazing from a plant’s perspective. Trish LaValley from the Franklin County NRCS will follow with how to build a pasture plan. After that, several CCE educators will give some real-life examples of pasture set-ups.

Part 2 on March 24 will dig deeper into hay and pasture management with O’Neil talking about trouble spots, like golden rod patches, swampy areas, and sacrifice areas. Jessica Williamson, from AGCO, will follow with a talk on making good quality baleage. Current custom rates, especially for haying, will be updated by Justin Tucker from CCE Franklin.

To register for the webinars, go to the CCE St. Lawrence website at http://stlawrence.cce.cornell.edu.
