MSU Extension, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Eric Egeler and family and Byron Seeds are sponsoring a field day on Saturday, August 20. This field day qualifies as a MAEAP Phase 1 meeting, so those interested in that program will get started simply by attending.

Attendees will be able to see a plot of 30 varieties of sorghum and sudan grass. Byron Seeds is testing these rather unique crops to Michigan. Eric has been using these crops to effectively finish his cattle without grain.  

Field day speakers include MSU Extension educators Jerry Lindquist and Kable Thurlow, Tyson Meador of Alta Seeds, and Ernest Weaver of Byron Seeds. A representative from Master Choice will also be on hand. Come enjoy the day, rain or shine, and learn some exciting things about Michigan grass fed beef. Also, come share a great lunch with us.
