Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

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

A backyard poultry systems program will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31 in the Fort Worth Room at the Tarrant County Extension Office in Fort Worth. “Housing, bird health and production decisions drive what best management practices are best for your flock,” says new Tarrant County Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension Agent Fred M. Hall, “and we will discuss what alternatives are available for small flock owners in this program.”

The movement of the backyard industry from coops and cages to pastured poultry has changed best management practices– predation and feeding more energy because of increased bird activity are higher priorities now. All of these issues will be discussed plus there will be plenty of time for questions.

While there is no charge for the program or parking, everyone is asked to reserve their seat on-line at:
