MADISON COUNTY —

Cover crop field day is April 15

The Madison County Conservation District, in coordination with UK Cooperative Extension Service, will conduct a field day on the Delbert Ousley Farm on Jacks Creek Road, April 15 at 5 p.m.

This event will be a follow-up to the soil health cover crop demonstration which was seeded last summer and viewed at one stop of the fall farm field day.

Come see the results of last fall’s diverse cover crop mixture for grazing and soil health. See examples of the summer cover crop seeds that will be used in the mix.

The event will give you a unique opportunity to see firsthand results and ask questions of the farm manager and discussion leaders.

A meal will be provided by the conservation district. For reservations, contact the conservation district at 624-1981, Ext. 3, by April 8, so we will have enough food.

Educational programs of the Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
