KEEDYSVILLE, Md. — University of Maryland Extension will host a Small Ruminant and Pasture Field Day on August 12 at the Western Maryland Research and Education Center in Keedysville from 4 to 7 p.m.
This free event will include wagon tours of the research site, with several interactive stops along the way. Tours will leave at 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. Tour stops will be conducted by Extension experts Amanda Grev, Charlie Sasscer, Jeff Semler, and Susan Schoenian. The information presented during these sessions will include the setup and application of a rotational grazing system, things to consider when deciding which forages to plant, managing seasonal fluctuations in forage quality, and an overview of the small ruminant research program. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.
Sheep and goat research has been conducted at the Western Maryland Research & Education Center since 2004. We hope that with help from farmers throughout the state we can continue to advance our research efforts for the benefit of all.
