Pasture walk is Dec. 6

November 29, 2005

The University of Maryland Extension is holding a pasture walk that will be a tour of Scott and Bill Poffenberger's families' management intensive beef operation near Sharpsburg.

The event will be Dec. 6. The pasture tour will be from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. A demonstration using a computer and a grazing planning tool will be from 1 to 4 p.m.

What do you do now that the fall season is over and you have no grass?

"We will be discussing this and talking about normal pasture stockpiling when you do have fall rains," the Extension office said in a press release.

To reach the farm, take Exit 29 off Interstate 70 south of Hagers-town. Turn onto Md. 65 south toward Sharpsburg. After 8.4 miles, turn right onto Mondell Road, go 1.6 miles to 6000 Mondell Road.
