Livestock producers looking to be more economical and extend their grazing season should make plans to attend the Fall Forage Field Day at the University of Tennessee Middle Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center Sept. 9.

It starts at 4 p.m. CDT. This year is the first time the forage field day has been held in the fall, and the program topics will reflect the seasonal change. University and industry experts will lead sessions on warm-season grass stockpiling, cool-season grass establishment and drill and sprayer calibration.

The sessions will take place at the Bull Test Center Conference Room.  The field day will wrap up at 7 p.m., when attendees will be treated to a sponsored dinner. 

There is no cost to attend, but advance registration is requested. Contact Calvin Bryant, UT Extension Lawrence County, 931-762-5506 or email ibryant1@utk.edu, by Monday, September 8.
