Extension Service News by Kim Strohmeier

Grills are great for cooking hamburgers and steaks. Unfortunately, many people stop there.
An entire gourmet meal can be prepared on a grill, or using other outdoor cooking equipment, including any assortment of meat or vegetables, and even desserts.
If you are interested in becoming the next grillmeister of your community, with the reputation of being a great outdoor chef, we’ve got a series of programs designed for you.
The Owen and Gallatin County extension services will be holding a series of evening programs demonstrating some potential uses of the grill. The first one will start at 6:30 p.m. July 28 at the Owen County Extension office. The topic will be direct grilling. Future programs in the series will be indirect grilling and other methods of outdoor cooking.
As a large meal will be provided, preregistration will be required from the extension office. Call 484-5703. There will be a limit to the number of people accepted, so if you are interested, call early. Deadline for registration is Monday afternoon, July 25. Sorry, but we will not be able to accept registrations after the deadline.  

Pasture management at Eden Shale Farm

The second in a series of pasture walks hosted by the Eden Shale Grazing Network Initiative will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Aug. 4 at the Eden Shale Farm, on Rt. 22E. The grazing network is designed for participants who have an interest in managing their forages and pastures for improved profitability. The walks provide an opportunity to see how others manage their forages, pastures and livestock while providing a chance to critique and question the operator.
If you are interested in attending this, let me know.
