The Monterey apple orchard owned by Larry and Sherry Ayres will be the site for a state-wide Fruit Growers Field Day next week.
The University of Kentucky Horticulture department is organizing a field day to focus on various aspects of orchard management. The field day will be held May 17, starting at 10 a.m.
Topics to be covered include managing insects in an orchard, fruit rot problems, the potentials of growing pears, and, something that is of particular concern in this area, orchard wildlife management.
Lunch will be available at a small cost for those who pre-register. To do so, call Mary Ann at 270-365-7541, ext. 216. The field day should conclude by 2:30 p.m.
Dept. of Agriculture services to be discussed at Cattlemen’s Association
The Kentucky Department of Agriculture provides numerous services to farmers across the state of Kentucky; many of these services not widely known about, even by farmers.
Some of these services as they relate to cattle production and marketing will be the topic of the upcoming Cattlemen’s Association meeting.
The meeting will be held Friday evening starting at 6:30 p.m., and will be held at the extension office. All Owen County cattlemen and their families are invited to attend. As a meal is being provided, please call the extension office (484-5703) for reservations by next Wednesday afternoon.
