2011 Polk/Dallas Grazing School Field Day

April 30, 2011

What a great grazing school group. The field day began at 9:00 AM at Richard and Tina McConnell’s Farm.
Curtis Gooch, Resource Conservationist, with NRCS, started off explaining the many options we have for watering livestock.
Myron Hartzell, Resource Conservationist, NRCS, demonstrated one method of using a floating corner brace for a high tensile electric fence.
Richard McConnell, SALT Project Manager, Polk Co SWCD, demonstrates tying HT electric wire and using a floating brace on wood posts. Here we discussed hooking up a cut off switch.
Richard shows a Super Bowl, frost free plastic waterer installed in 2000.
Our calves appear to be enjoying our guest too.
