Fall Range Tour – Gillespie County

FREDERICKSBURG, TEXAS – The annual Fall Range Tour is scheduled for Thursday, October 14, 2021. Program will start at 5:30pm and will last until 7:30pm. This year the program will be located near the Behrends Feed old turkey barns located off Grapetown Road in Luckenbach Texas. (Directions: turn south off FM 1376 onto Grapetown Road, go down 1.7 miles, turn right onto Sunday House Road.)  Please bring folding chairs.
This year’s speaker will be Dr. Larry Redmon; Professor and Associate Department Head, Department of Soil & Crop Sciences, Texas A&M Agriculture and Life Sciences, who will give a seminar over haylage.  Haylage is silage made from grass which has been partially dried and wrapped to get proper fermentation by excluding air.  Many of you have seen the white plastic wrapped bales sitting in some of the hay fields over the past few years.  Bales that have went through the fermentation process can become more palatable and digestible for your cattle, sheep, and goats.  Many producers in the Midwest are using haylage as a single ingredient ration.  This could be a perfect fit for Gillespie County as much of the existing farmland has been turned strictly into hay fields.  Local producers will be present to display haylage equipment and share their experiences with all aspects of making, storing, and feeding haylage.
2 general CEU hours will be given for Private Pesticide License Applicators.
No meal provided, so RSVP is not needed.
