The Eastern North Carolina Hay Day will be held in Pitt County on June 25, 2013, at the Tar River Ranch located on 3110 Old River Road, Greenville, N.C. 27834. 

The event will begin with registration at 9:30 a.m. and the program will begin at 10 a.m. with mover and conditioners demonstration. 

The education program will follow with presentations on weed management in pastures, forage production management, and updates of the beef industry from the North Carolina Cattlemen’s Association.
