UGA Mountain Beef Cattle Field Day set April 19

University of Georgia

Whether your cattle stock consists of hundreds or just a few, you're sure to benefit from the University of Georgia's annual Mountain Beef Cattle Field Day April 19.

The field day will start at 9 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. at the Georgia Mountain Research and Education Center in Blairsville, Ga. Participants will learn the most up-to-date, research-based information from UGA, Clemson and North Carolina State scientists.

This year's topics include:

  • How to market hay with the help of relative forage quality.

  • A producer's perspective on harvesting grass.

  • Parasites of cattle.

  • Herbicides to use for pastures and fence rows.
Researchers will discuss the economics of fall versus spring calving, too, and production and storage losses of hay. Producers will also see firsthand results of a stocker research project using Bio-Mos feed supplement.

There is no charge for the field day, and lunch will be provided, courtesy AgGeorgia Farm Credit. For more information, call (706) 745-2655.
