The first Advanced Kentucky Grazing School will take place July 10 at the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture's C. Oran Little Research Center in Versailles.
The one-day school is for participants who have previously attended one of UK's grazing programs.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Topics include strip grazing and livestock management, summer annual forages, health considerations for grazing ruminants, tall fescue varieties and management, benefits and limitations of herbicides and ultra-high density grazing. The program will also include demonstrations and hands-on activities.
The registration fee is $20. Registration forms are available on the UK Forages website at http://www.uky.edu/Ag/Forage/ or at the local office of the UK Cooperative Extension Service.
Preregistration is required by July 2. Mail registration forms and a check payable to the Kentucky Forage and Grassland Council to Lyndsay Jones, 804 W.P. Garrigus Building, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY 40546-0215.
