Forage field day set in Franklinton

The LSU AgCenter will present a program on improving pasture land at a forage field day event May 31 at the Southeast Research Station in Washington Parish.

Registration is at 8:30 a.m. and the program will begin at 9 a.m. with a discussion of forage production, said station official Mike McCormick.

Other topics include ways to manage summer forages for high yield and quality, Holstein steer growth on pasture land and agriculture-byproduct supplements. A panel discussion will focus on best practices in beef, dairy and equine forage programs, McCormick said.

McCormick can be reached for more information at (985) 839-2322.
