Jackson Agricultural Research Station
19 Standpipe Road
From broadleaf weed management and fence building and construction to beef cattle handling and animal care, livestock producers can learn the latest updates in the beef and forage industry during a workshop offered by experts with Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences during this workshop.
The Jackson Beef and Forage Field Night will include the opportunity for beef cattle producers to have an up-close look at how to build a fence that can hopefully last a lifetime. The Jackson Agricultural Research Station is part of the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) and has been a primary site for reproductive and production management research in beef cattle for more than three decades.
Research in forage management systems done at the research station has contributed to the grazing approaches used by many producers today.
The event will feature presentations from Ohio State University Extension and OARDC researchers and educators, including Steve Boyles, Jeff Fisher, Mark Loux, Justin Spengler and Jeff Moore.
Topics for the field night include: Beef cattle handling and facilities design, controlling spiny amaranth and building functional long-lasting fence braces.
The event, which will include dinner, is $5 per person, with a deadline to register Aug. 25.
