LITTLE ROCK – Faculty and staff with the University of Arkansas System Division of
Agriculture will present research related to pastures and forage production at the
2019 Focus on Forages Field Day on Oct. 18 at the Pauline Whitaker Animal Science
Center arena at the Milo J. Shult Agricultural Research and Extension Center, 1336
W. Knapp Ave., in Fayetteville.
The event runs 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m. with onsite registration beginning at 8 a.m. Program
highlights include workshops on baleage, forage digestibility, the use of early harvests
to increase forage growing seasons, and the benefits of baleage versus dry hay.
Field tours will explore control options for foxtail and Johnsongrass, pasture and
hay land fertility studies, mixing cool- and warm-season forages for food plots, and
baleage equipment. Demonstrations of late-planted corn, sorghum and millet for fall
forage production will be available.
Registration is free and includes lunch.
Matthew Bertucci, a research scientist in turf, pasture, and specialty crop weed management
in the Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences Department, will showcase new herbicide
chemistries that could limit weed populations and optimize yields. Animal science
extension specialists John Jennings and Kenny Simon will have a demonstration on late-planted
annual forages for extended grazing or hay production.
“We have plenty of experts who will share their knowledge during the morning session
indoors,” Bertucci said. “Our hope is to share our findings and improve productivity
of all our forage producers in the area.”
The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture provides services throughout
the year at no charge as a way to strengthen agriculture, communities and families.
Events and presentations offer the latest information about new products and research
studies that lead to the adoption of best practices. Attendees also have an opportunity
to network with others in the industry.
