NC Cooperative Extension announces pasture establishment & maintenance meeting in Currituck

Are you planning to raise horses or livestock, but don’t know how to get your pasture started? Or maybe your once beautiful pasture has become neglected and overrun with weeds? If you need help with your pastures this year, NC Cooperative Extension has the class for you!

Join us on February 22nd, from 10:00 – 11:30 am at the NC Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center, located at 120 Community Way in Barco for our Pasture Establishment & Maintenance Meeting. Extension professionals from Currituck and Perquimans Counties are partnering up to cover everything you need to know to get your pasture growing well.

The class will start with a brief introduction to soil health. This portion will cover what type of soil is present in your pasture, why you should get your soil tested, how to interpret the results, and how to amend your soil. We’ll then dive deeper into how to prepare the field for planting, what plants work well for different animal species in Northeast NC, and how to manage and maintain pastures.
