Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

A local discussion of current science and issues concerning dairying in northwest iowa

Unconventional grazing systems typically involve an unusual management effort, an unusual kind or class of livestock, multi-species grazing and more often a combination of these three. “This is often the hall-mark of small farms in the urban area around Fort Worth and that makes this program a great fit for local folks” says new Tarrant County AgriLife Extension Agent Fred M. Hall.

This program will kick-off with a webinar lead by Jess Jackson Jr., Natural Resource Conservation Service liaison located in Fort Worth. He will talk about what options are available for producers and the conservation benefits. After the webinar Hall will lead a discussion on multi-species pasture choices for this area and answer additional questions.

The webinar will be held in the Extension office Blue Bonnet room on the fifth floor located at 200 Taylor in Fort Worth. While there is no fee for the program, registration must be made by noon on the Monday before. If there are no registrations at that time the program will be cancelled.

For more information or to register, contact the Texas AgriLife Extension Service Office in Tarrant County at 817.884.1945.
