Topics will include an overview of soil health, creating a nutrient management plan, measuring forage quality and methods to better manage livestock grazing.

Attendees are encouraged to come with questions.

The field day includes two time slots on Wednesday, Aug. 17. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the event will be held at 11652 E. Tepoel Dr. in Maple. The second time slot runs from 6-9 p.m. at 4061 S. County Road F in Maple.


The events will be held outside on working farms so participants are asked to dress accordingly.

There is a $5 per person registration fee, and food and restrooms will be provided at both locations.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
