The next meeting of the Carroll County Cattlemen’s Association will be tomorrow night, Thursday, Jan. 27, at 6 p.m. There will be a meal followed by a business meeting. We will be electing officers as part of the meeting. The program will be presented by Dr. Ray Smith and will cover dealing with pastures and hay fields following last year’s drought. If you plan to attend please RSVP to the office at 732-7030 by noon Thursday, Jan. 27 for a meal count.
Dealing With Your Pastures and Hay Fields after the Drought
Last year we had two months when we were extremely wet then the water was turned off and some say it was as dry as had been since the dust bowl days. I know they were putting in some sewer lines out by the office and 10 feet down there was no moisture. Normally this is what many call crawdad ground.
Ray Smith, Extension Forage Specialist, will be presenting a program on dealing with our pastures and hay ground coming out of the drought. The grass did green but what about our legumes and what should we be doing about weed control this spring.
Dr. Smith’s program will begin at 7 p.m. or very shortly after that depending on the business meeting for the Cattlemen’s Association. The program is open to anyone (not just members of the Cattlemen’s Association) and any livestock producer is invited to join us for the meal starting at 6 p.m. and learn a little more about the Cattlemen’s Association. If you plan to attend please RSVP to the office at 732-7030 by noon Thursday, Jan. 27 for a meal count.
Carrollton Photography Club
The Carrollton Photography Club will meet next Monday, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m. at the Carroll County Extension Office. The club will be planning several shoots for the spring and we will also be watching a couple of videos about lighting. The club is open to anyone interested in photography. Beginners to professionals are welcome!
Beginning Photography Workshops
I will be offering two beginning photography workshops on Saturdays, February 19 and February 26, from 10 a.m. until noon at the Extension Office. I have been reworking the sessions trying to make them less technical. We will cover camera basics, composition and managing the pictures after your take them. The workshops are free and please bring your camera and the owner’s manual with you.
