Clark County Pasture Walk to be held Thursday, August 21

The fourth in a series of five western Ohio pasture walks will be held on Thursday, August 21 from 6:30 to 9:00 in the evening. This walk will be held at the farm of retired Extension Agriculture Agent Mike Haubner, located at 8651 Troy Rd. New Carlisle, Ohio.

Bob Hendershot, NRCS grazing specialist will be on hand to discuss pasture fertility management, plant species identification and selection, rotational grazing, and much more. The Haubner farm is currently raising replacement dairy heifers but the information that will be presented will benefit graziers of all species of livestock.

There is no registration requirement, but for more information contact Jonah Johnson at the Clark County Extension Office.
