UNL Extension Mid-Plains BEEF session focuses on drought


University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension's Mid-Plains BEEF Educational Series will conduct a special Jan. 31 session on pasture and forage drought management tips for cow herds at the UNL Agricultural Research and Development Center near Mead.

The 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. session will draw on the expertise of Rick Rasby, UNL Extension beef specialist, Bruce Anderson, UNL Extension forage specialist, and Monte Vandeveer, Lindsay Chichester, Jessica Jones, Darci Pesek, Monte Stauffer and Steve Tonn, UNL Extension educators, to share their farm management and beef cattle expertise with participants.

The program is designed for producers, veterinarians or others involved in the beef industry.

This special session will deal with how to manage pastures and forages through the drought, management options for cow herds in dealing with the drought and the use of pasture insurance as a risk management tool.

Participants will learn more about managing drought stressed cool- and warm-season grass pastures, pasture weed management strategies, fertilizing pastures, pasture insurance as a risk management tool, culling cows, early weaning calves and pregnancy checking cows.

Time will also be allotted to visit with the speakers on an individual or small group basis.

Registration of $60, which covers educational materials, noon meal and breaks, is requested by Jan. 24.
