Pasture Plant Identification Workshop @ Kerr Center for Sustainable Agriculture | Poteau | Oklahoma | United States

Identify the grasses and other plants growing in your pasture during this free morning workshop at the Kerr Center. Join Kerr Ranch staff for some hands-on training “in the field.”

This workshop should be ideal for beginners, but will also be useful as a refresher for those with more experience.  Whether raising cattle, goats or sheep, producers need to know which forages are available to their animals over the course of the season.

This workshop is free, and no registration is required.
