NDSU to host cover crop and forage grazing workshop

Producers will learn more about grazing cover crops and forages during a workshop NDSU’s soil health team is scheduled to present March 4 at the Astoria Hotel and Event Center in Dickinson, North Dakota.

"This workshop is designed to show the latest research findings on grazing cover crops and the impacts on the soil and livestock, while incorporating alfalfa management in western North Dakota and using precision agriculture to help map lands using these alternative land management strategies," said NDSU Extension rangeland management specialist Kevin Sedivec, who is one of the workshop presenters.

Topics include:

• Livestock and soil health synergy

• Cover crop selection and timing

• Profitability mapping to help explore alternative options

• Livestock stocking rates and manure management

• How to get the best out of alfalfa and alfalfa-grass mixes

• Multispecies forage mixes for haying and grazing

The daylong event starts at 9:30 a.m. Register here. For more information, contact at Sedivec at 701-424-3606 or kevin.sedivec@ndsu.edu.
