The 29th annual O.D. Butler Forage Field Day event is scheduled to take place on May 15 at the Circle X Land & Cattle Company Camp Cooley Ranch Division in Bryan, Tx., where John Deere and other companies will be exhibiting forage equipment.
The event is dedicated to providing agricultural education to attendees, and it will include everything from live demonstrations to lecture sessions, according to AgriLife Today.
“This year’s field day will feature a morning tour of demonstration plots and other forage-related stops,” said Edward Schneider, agent for the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. “The afternoon session will include live demonstrations of the latest technology and newest forage-related equipment on the market. The field day will also feature a large group of ag industry booths.”
Registration for the event is $25, and several speakers are slated to talk throughout the day. Paul Baumann, weed specialist; Barron Rector, rangeland specialist; and Larry Redmon, state forage specialist, are all scheduled to participate.
There will also be numerous booths set up for attendees to visit throughout the day. Exhibitors, such as John Deere, will have a unique opportunity to connect with agricultural enthusiasts.
“Each company will have enough acreage to demonstrate how the equipment works,” Schneider continued. “At the conclusion of the live equipment demonstrations, we will have final door prize drawings and continuing education unit certificates will be handed out.”
The event is being sponsored by the Brazos Area Hay Producers and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
