Peace Country Beef and Forage Association is creating podcasts to “share ideas supported by sound science and practical wisdom.”
The Coffee, Cows & Crops podcasts can be found at peacecountrybeef.ca. One is on continuous cropping and adaptive management in which Jay Byer (soil conservation analyst, Gateway Research Organization) talks about management systems on marginal land. Another features rancher and beef extension specialist Andrea Hanson discussing the use of perennials for forage and extending the grazing season.
Other topics include animal pathology (with Dr. Jennifer Davies from the University of Calgary’s faculty of veterinary medicine) and feed tests/winter feeding (with consultant and former provincial beef and forage specialist Barry Yaremcio).
