A May 11 forage field day in Holly Springs, Miss., will display cutting-edge grazing and forage research and present information on the management of one Mississippi State University cow herd.

The North Mississippi Forage Field Day is being held at the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station's Holly Springs Branch Experiment Station. Highlights of the one-day event will be information on chicory grazing research, brown midrib sudangrass and beef herd management.

“This field day is an excellent opportunity for forage professionals and grazing livestock producers to view and discuss some of the very latest in forage crop technology,” said Richard Watson, event organizer and MSU Extension Service forage specialist.

Registration begins at 9 a.m., and the program starts at 9:30 a.m. Lunch and refreshments will be provided, and the field day will conclude by 2 p.m.
