Beef cow-calf field day

The University of Illinois Dudley Smith Research Farm in Christian County will host a beef cow-calf field day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, June 8.

The program will emphasize grazing beef cows on cool-season grasses and summer annuals.

Those interested in attending should register by Monday, June 5, with the Christian County Extension Office at 217-287-7246.

Topics will include data on improved pasture systems, including animal performance, days on pasture, daily cost for the grazing season, and average return per cow; agronomic and soil health issues; and an update on the cattle grazing project.

There is no cost to attend and a free meal will be served. For additional information or to register, contact the Christian County Extension office at 217-287-7246.
