Gilmer County Winter Grazing Field Day scheduled, September 18.                                                                                               

GLENVILLE, W.Va. — The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in cooperation with the West Virginia University Extension Service will co-host a Field Day to discuss stockpiling and winter grazing.

“Field days like this allow local farmers and landowners the opportunity to learn “hands-on” about different conservation practices and how to carry them out on their own land,” said Zomarys Dumeng, acting NRCS District Conservationist. “By partnering with the WVU Extension Service and local land owners it not only gives us an opportunity to share resources but also helps make our communities healthier and stronger.”

The Field Day will discuss different aspects of stockpiling forage such as, winter feeding, nutrient management, adding legumes, fencing, and water requirements.

The Field Day will be held at 6 p.m. September 18, at the Westfall Farm in Gilmer County. The farm is located just outside of Glenville.
