Winter Forage Field Day at NTCC Farm

Early fall-winter forage production is particularly valuable as it allows flexibility for earlier grazing or increased stockpiling. The goal of the Noble Research Institute’s small grains breeding program is to develop cultivars with improved forage qualities, better fall production, improved ability to recover after grazing and better overall forage yields. Come see six of the new small grain varieties, selected for increased early season forage yields, recently released by the Noble Research Institute

Save the date for Thursday, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. at the Elizabeth Hoggatt Whatley Agriculture Complex at Northeast Texas Community College: 2886 FM 1735 Chapel Hill Road, Mount Pleasant, TX. This is a no-till site located on the NTCC farm grazing pasture

“We have been pleasantly surprised with the performance of some of these new cultivars in spite of our moderately dry fall – so much so that we went to East Texas Seed and purchase some of the seed from East Texas Seed for other pastures on the farm,” Rene’ McCracken, NTCC Director of Agriculture, said.

There is no registration fee for this field day, however RSVP required to plan for the meal, please call 903-434-8267 to reserve your spot.
