About the Pasture Walk

This Pasture Walk was organized by Keenan Turner, Pulaski County Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension Agent. The Pasture Walk involves visiting a farm and meeting with a farmer who is trying to maximize grazing and reduce the need for baling hay. Some of these practices are unconventional and some have not worked. This page is not a comprehensive overview of the trials and errors. It is merely an introduction into the topic. If you have questions regarding the Pasture Walk, please call or write Keenan Turner.
