LITTLE ROCK – Two ranches in Lawrence and Randolph counties that weathered the extremes
of drought and flood and still managed 300 days of grazing will be showcased as part
of the Arkansas Forage and Grassland Council spring tour on May 2.
Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. and buses leave at 9:30 a.m. from the Pocahontas
Livestock Auction Barn in Pocahontas on Friday, May 2. Buses will return by 4:30 p.m.
"This tour is a great opportunity to see how different grazing and forage management
strategies work on two different farm operations," said John Jennings, professor-forage
for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. "These two farms are
opening their doors to show how they are putting information from research and the
University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture’s 300 Day Grazing Demonstration
program to good use to save money, labor and time.”
Participants will visit two area livestock farms of different sizes and grazing programs.
Among the discussion topics are:
Cost per person is $25, $10 for students. Registration includes lunch, all materials
and bus transportation.
To reach the Pocahontas Livestock Auction, take Hwy 67 into Pocahontas, turn onto
Townsend St. (at the intersection of Hwys 67 and 304, at the T-Ricks Citgo gas station)
and go west about a quarter mile to the Livestock Auction Barn.
For more information about the conference or to pre-register, call John Jennings,
AFGC secretary, at 501-671-2350, or contact any AFGC board member.
