Agriculture Today Radio Program Tuesday, April 2


K-State animal scientist K.C. Olson comments on making grazing
management decisions this year, with the understanding that the
drought has already hampered this year's grass production...he
advises grazing managers to lighten up significantly on stocking
rates

Further remarks on putting together a drought management plan for
pastures, as shared at K-State's Southern Plains Drought Summit last
week: K-State beef systems specialist Justin Waggoner talks about
options for supplemental feeding cattle on summer grass, and K-State
beef cattle scientist John Jaeger stresses the importance of
monitoring the body condition scores of the grazing cow herd this
year

And K-State wildlife specialist Charlie Lee looks at controlling
kangaroo rats in crop fields ahead of planting time, to prevent them
from consuming newly-planted crop seed
