Central Indiana Pasture Walk

Postby denice » Thu Jul 31, 2014 5:38 am

Things are coming together for the pasture walk and sheep day centered around Purdue on Sept 6th. Details are still being worked out but we will have a pasture walk, ultrasound demo, talk about CIDRs, and stockdog herding demo. Still hoping to have someone speak about parasites and do all this on two different farms that manage sheep differently.

The grazing specialist doing the pasture walk has sheep himself so should be great and not only have great knowlege to share but practical experience as well.

I will post more details once I have them

I have more details on the pasture walk and sheep day. We will be meeting in Flora Indiana at 1707 East 50 South at 9am. We will be at my friends Travis's farm, he has 300 hair ewes that be breeds to mostly hamps - fattens the lambs on a mix of grains and forages and grazes the ewes on pastures, crops, and cover crops. He also has a few East Fresian's that are milked for cheese making. In addition he pasture raises hogs and farms lots of ground. I have Victo Shelton, grazing specialist adding his expertise and pratical experience as a sheep producer. During the pasture walk we will cover nutrition, pasture management, cover crops ect. I will be doing a stockdog /herding demo, Gerald Kelly manager of Purdue sheep barn is joining us to add his knowledge and demo sheep ultrasounds and talk about receip ewes ect, another producer is going to talk about CIDR's and how they use those to manage lambing.

There is NO charge for the day. We will all go out to eat lunch as a group mid day.
I am sure we will all take away some useful info and have a great time.

mark you might get lost in a corn field but I doubt traffic will be an issue. Unless you are behind a combine :)
