Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

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

“Almost every week I hear questions from new landowners and folks who want to put a horse on a small acreage, says Tarrant County AgriLife Extension Agent Fred M. Hall. What kind of pasture should I grow? How Do I control Weeds? How many horse can I put on my new place? How do I control flies? These are difficult questions to answer and because each farmette is different. This program will share lots of information with new owners. It is set for 6 to &:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 30 and will be held in the Bluebonnet Room in the Tarrant County Extension office. The office is located at 200 Taylor St., in Fort Worth.

Topics will include: determining carrying capacity, grasses, forbs and legumes, controlling weeds, fencing, fly control plus a review of the cost of owning a horse. There will be time to discuss questions from the audience. Plus lots of handouts.

Tarrant County Agriculture and Natural Resources Agent Fred M. Hall will share common sense practices to implementing best management practices that make sense for your “Ponderosa”. In addition, there will be a sign-up for Hall’s bi-monthly Equine Update that covers current topics and issues in the industry.
