As the mid-state drought deepens, UT Extension is coordinating a series of livestock producer meetings to assist with the increasing dire situation of the state’s forage and pastures. Two meetings will be held in each grand division of the state. Here in Middle Tennessee:
July 17, 5:30-9:00 p.m., Tennessee Farm Bureau Bldg., Columbia
July 19, 5:30-9:00 p.m., Wilson County Fairgrounds, Lebanon
Through a public website, farmers have direct access online to information that can help them make the critical and sometimes heart-wrenching decisions necessary to keep their operations and families financially viable. Information specific to Tennessee production systems has been collected and cross-linked on the website: https://utextension.tennessee.edu/drought/ which will be available to the public free of charge on a 24-hour basis.
