From Field to Food

Dairy Month Lecture Series

Presenter: Cathy Shugg is a soil agronomist for Crop Production Services, Inc. in South Deerfield, MA.

Farmers have a lot to think about when it comes to planting season. Hear about general cropping considerations and the factors that influence them: the cow and her diet, herd size, land availability, soil type, tillage practices, crop nutrient needs, manure applications, seed selection (including GMO’s), herbicide applications, and harvesting methods.

Free wagon ride farm tour begins at Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery and will take approximately 1 hour. Tour is on a first come first serve basis.
