Heart of America Grazing Conference

Livestock producers interested in grazing will want to attend the fifth annual Heart of America Grazing Conference in Cave City, Kentucky on January 25 and 26, says Justin Sexten, University of Illinois Extension beef specialist.

The program begins with “Forages in Kentucky” by Gary Lacefield and “Year-round Grazing Options for Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri and Ohio” by Ed Ballard.

The January 26 presentations include: Horse Pastures: Challenges and Opportunities; Traditional Confinement Dairying to Grazing Replacement Heifers; Grazing Programs for Goats; Maximizing Production of Beef Cattle on Pasture; Pastures for Wildlife; Animal Behavior: Impact on Grazing; and Grazing Programs: Environmentally Friendly, Economically Sound and Agronomically Feasible.

In the afternoon, four breakout sessions will be offered at two separate times. The first session will cover Tall Fescue-Endophyte-Animal Relations, session two focuses on Developing Fencing and Water Systems for Efficient Grazing. The third session will cover Non-Traditional Forages for Grazing, and the fourth breakout highlights a Kentucky grazing panel of horse, beef, sheep, goat and dairy producers.

Registration is $25 for 2 days or $15 for one.
