More Series Events Planned Over the Next Few Week
Fourteen people braved November temperatures, snow flurries and a cold northwest wind to learn more about how to improve the bottom line in their beef or dairy operation. The Nov. 22 Keep Cattle in Minnesota Workshop workshop in east Ottertail County was the first in a series of workshops that will be offered around the state to provided producers with management options that have demonstrated the ability to reduce operational cost, provide additional income streams and improve soil health.
Kent Solberg, SFA Livestock and Grazing Specialist, provided an overview of management options and examples of how producers are applying them on their farm or ranch. Ivan and Dayle Reinke of Clover Leaf Grass Farm shared an overview of their beef operation with specific emphasis on how they use stock piled forages and bale grazing to get their cattle through the winter and build soil fertility. In photo above, Ivan Reinke (center) discusses bale grazing and management of his beef operation.
