Due to the overwhelming success of a spring grazing program, the University of Kentucky Master Grazer Program is hosting a one-day grazing school in Morgan County.

The event will be from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23 at the Morgan County extension research farm in West Liberty. Specialists with the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment will cover topics related to fall pasture management.

“The participants will learn about issues producers’ face during the fall,” said Cody Smith, coordinator for the UK Master Grazer Program. “This includes topics like stockpiling fescue, selecting winter annuals for grazing, summer annuals’ performance, and calibrating a no-till drill and an herbicide sprayer.”

Anyone is welcome to attend, regardless of whether they participated in the spring grazing school. Refreshments will be provided. Contact Smith at 859-257-7512, Sarah Fannin at 606-743-3292 or Daniel Wilson at 606-668-3712 for more information or to register. Fannin and Wilson are agriculture and natural resources agents with the UK Cooperative Extension Service in Morgan and Wolfe counties, respectively.

The research farm is located on state Route 172, just past the intersection of U.S. Route 460 in West Liberty.
