The Bovine: Forages, wild pigs, and a whirlwind trip to Ottawa
Our fourth episode of The Bovine is now available!
On this episode:
- Can you keep your grazing livestock off the grass a while longer? Masters student and host of ‘Forays into Forages,’ David MacTaggart, joins the show to talk about the general lifecycle of perennial plants, and how we can support forages post-drought.
- Pigs in the back 40. Wild boar specialist, Dr. Ryan Brook talks about the distribution of wild pigs on the prairies, their lifecycle, and current recommendations for eradication efforts.
- Taking on another role. Melissa Downing, an already busy rancher with an off-farm job, volunteer gigs, and a family, joins the show to talk about her new role as a delegate with Alberta Beef Producers.
- Providing research direction at ABP. Beef Production and Extension Lead, Karin Schmid comments on the show, and provides a bit of background on opportunities for beef producers and delegates interested in research.
