Year-round Pasture Production and Management Workshop

July 29, 2011
Union Hill Baptist Church
434 County Road 59, Union Spring, AL 36089

Ruminant livestock production in Alabama is based on pasture. Highly productive and quality pasture persisting throughout a year or most of the year is important for profitable livestock enterprises. Most of the livestock producers in Alabama have warm-season perennial pasture that produce from April to October and have negligible or no production from November to March, when farmers need to invest in supplementary feedstuffs like hay and agricultural byproducts to sustain their livestock. Feeding supplement for 5-6 months each year is not cost-effective. The purpose of this workshop is to educate and train Extension professionals and livestock producers on pasture improvement, grazing management, and conservation and proper use of surplus forage biomass produced.
