COLUMBUS - Over 40 livestock producers from Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma attended a grazing school on Saturday, Oct. 14, sponsored by K-State Research and Extension’s Cherokee County, Southwind District, and Wildcat District.

The workshop was held at the Cherokee County 4-H Building in Columbus and featured presentations on utilizing resources, proper soil fertility, livestock nutrient requirements and developing a year round grazing system. Highlights of the event were an opportunity for producers to tour local grazing operations and view the results of a fall fescue fertilization study. Farmers Coop and Labette Bank were sponsors of the event.

A similar school is planned for next fall in Parsons.
