STILLWATER, Okla. — Oklahoma producers can get a firsthand look at the latest cutting-edge research showcasing best cattle management practices by attending Oklahoma State University’s Marvin Klemme Range Research Station Field Day on Sept. 29.
“Think of it as one-stop shopping where participants can interact with experts and increase their understanding of research-based practices they might want to incorporate in their own operations,” said Marty New, OSU Extension area livestock specialist for southwestern Oklahoma. “It’s also a great opportunity for producers to speak with peers who might be managing ranch situations similar to their own.”
There is no cost to attend the 8 a.m. to noon field day. However, participants are asked to RSVP by contacting Zack Henderson, Washita County Extension agricultural educator, by email at email@example.com or by phone at 580-832-3356.
“We’re providing a sponsored lunch after the morning sessions and the RSVP helps us ensure sufficient numbers of meals and refreshments are on hand,” New said.
The station consists of 1,560 acres and is located 10 miles south and 5 miles west of Clinton, or 5 miles west and 1.5 miles north of Highway 183 near Bessie.
A featured part of the field day will be an overview of the National Ecological Observatory Network’s instrumentation and terrestrial observational sampling conducted at the OSU Ag Research experiment station.
Additional sessions will focus on supplementation research, patch burning and grazing distribution, wildlife habitat improvement on pastureland, a hay storage demonstration and a status update about planned station enhancements and how they will help Oklahoma producers.
