Beef Cattle School
The three-day program (October 6, 13, 20) focuses on forage weed control, spring development, working livestock, carcass beef breeds and open cows. “We’re hoping to show producers low-stress, economical and practical practices they can implement on their cattle farms,” said Clif Little, OSU Extension educator in agriculture and natural resources.
“For example, participants can see the effects of pasture clipping versus chemical weed control methods that we’ve implemented on land at the research station to see which method would offer them the best use of their time and resources to implement.”
The Beef School is sponsored by OSU Extension, OARDC and Farm Credit Mid-America of Cambridge. The school will be held at the Eastern Agricultural Research Station, 16870 Township Road 126, in Belle Valley, just off Interstate 77 in Noble County. Registration is $10 and includes all materials and dinner daily. The deadline to register is Sept. 28.
To reach the Eastern Agricultural Research Station, take exit 28 off I-77. Turn south on SR 21. Go east (left) on SR 215 for about one mile. Then turn right onto Bond Ridge Road (a township road).
