Eastern Ohio Grazing Council pasture walk

Topics include pressurized water system sizing and installation, clipping pastures vs. not clipping, grazing seasonally flooded land, and unrolling hay for winter feeding.
A meal will be provided. Reservations can be made through the Carroll Soil and Water Conservation District at 330-627-9852 or at https://tinyurl.com/September2022EOGC.
Anyone interested in the conservation of soil and water through growing and grazing is encouraged to attend monthly meetings. To attend any of the events, call the Carroll district at 330-627-9852 to be placed on the mailing list. Contact Beth at email@example.com to be added to the email list.
