SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The first in a series of pasture walks is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., May 15 at Rusty Hathcock's beef operation in Greene County, south of Bois D’Arc.

A pasture walk is an opportunity for graziers to learn from each other. This pasture walk includes a tour of a rotational grazing system with discussion of both current forage and grazing management practices.

Call (417) 831-5246, ext. 3 to register and receive directions.

“Pasture walks are a great way to see how others manage their pastures and to share experiences of things that have worked, or haven’t worked. They also let you see new developments in pasture production and management, and give you a chance to see ideas implemented on farms or ranches like yours before you spend money and time doing something,” said Mark Green, district conservationist with NRCS in Springfield.
