This tour features hands-on activities with cattle on pastures. Producers will leave with an understanding of paddock fencing and water system components, with in-depth discussion about field practices and evaluation of cover crop mixes by looking at rooting structure and soil health indicators.

High stock density grazing will be demonstrated with a small herd of black Angus cattle, and we'll talk about the use of alternative forages and diverse cover crops to transform mediocre fields into highly productive ones. We'll also talk about soil health principles for both cropping and livestock operations using a rainfall simulator demonstration.
