FREE Pasture Walk | Gallagher Electric Fencing

FREE Pasture Walk Series that will be held throughout the state. The focus of the series is two-fold: pasture management, as well as education concerning the Asian Longhorned Tick and its potential effects on the our Livestock Industry. These ticks can be found throughout the spring and summer months, and thrive in tall grasses under wet, humid conditions, meaning conditions are ripe for potential infestations. 

Agenda

6:00 - 6:15pm Welcome and Introductions

6:15 - 7:00pm Dr. Megan Fritz: The Asian Longhorned Tick - What is it, What to look for on your

                          farm and What to do if you find them.

7:00 - 8:30pm Farm Tour and Pasture Walk
