Grazing and forage are among the key issues that will be discussed during this year’s event.

The results of grazing and forage studies, and a new study on cow and bee movement patterns are among the topics for the July 9 field day at North Dakota State University’s Central Grasslands Research Extension Center near Streeter, N.D.

The field day will run from 4 to 7 p.m., followed by a beef supper. Center scientists will discuss:

  • A patch-burn grazing study
  • A modified rest-rotation and twice-over rotation grazing study
  • Performance of beef cattle managed in two overwintering environments
  • Heifer development using different mineral strategies on pasture
  • Alfalfa and cover crop studies
  • A pollinator study using radio telemetry and bumble bees

Visitors will have an opportunity to see the center’s research projects and learn about the issues that lead to the initiation of the studies the center conducts.

To reach the center from Interstate 94, turn south onto North Dakota Highway 30 and drive 11 miles, then 5 miles west and 1/2 mile south.
