Fall is a good time to control many of the typical weeds found in pastures. The workshop will focus on general management principles for small livestock and horses, but all livestock owners are welcome. Topics include: identifying pasture plants, weeds, and toxic plants; weed control options; and using herbicides safely. Pre-registration is requested by Friday, September 9, 2011 - THAT'S TODAY.
