OSU Eastern Research Station Field Day
Field Tour of ERS’s Progressing Forage Management
ERS is utilizing strategic soil fertility as well as advanced grazing and herd management strategies to improve forage utilization and reduce the dependence on hay and supplement while minimizing production costs. Strategies and results from the first winter season under the new forage management system will be shown, with a discussion of ERS’s plans for this spring and summer.
Alternative Weaning Strategies and Demonstration
The ERS calves will be weaned the day prior to the field day, with half of the calves traditionally weaned in the lot, and the other calves utilizing nose flaps and temporary electric fence to fence-line wean alongside the dams.
The field day is free and lunch is provided. Please RSVP for an accurate meal count.
The station consists of 298 acres and is located 14 miles west of Muskogee and 6 miles south of Haskell, at the intersection of Highways 16 and 72.
