OSU Forage Management Series
This is a multi-part series including sessions on forage assessment, harvet management, irrigation, renovation techniques, and fertility and includes indoor meetings as well as outdoor to demonstrate the principles of the series. We will have a "project ranch" that we work on together, including site visits and an on-line document sharing and blog. The project ranch will be the Wilson Farm, the OSU sheep facility with sheep and cattle grazing the pastures. You can also work on your own ranch as a side project if desired. The objective of the series is to improve knowledge about managing forage on properties in the Willamete Valley.
Insructor: Shelby Filley, other OSU faculty, and local experts
Fee: $25 per evening session per individual or ranch family/group ($100 for the series of five sessions). Please pe-register by completing the attached registration form.
