Grazing mini-series offered

The Meadowlark Extension District in Cooperation with the Jackson County Conservation District and the Natural Resources Conservation Service is sponsoring a three-part mini-grazing school. The events are hosted by the Charles & Paul Kennedy Farms, located southwest of Holton, Kansas.

The second session will be June 26. The focus will be on unwanted weeds and brush. Mixie Vance, the Jackson County Noxious Weed Director, and Walt Fick, KSU range management specialist, will be the featured presenters. The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with a light meal that is sponsored by the Jackson County Conservation District. Due to the meal count, we ask that you call in at 785-364-4125, or email [email protected] to make sure we have enough food.

The third session will feature water and fencing ideas, which may be extremely timely, if precipitation does not occur. The third session will be held in late August.

All interested persons are encouraged to attend any or all sessions.
