Agricultural Outreach


I spent the day in Pass Christian attending an Agricultural Outreach Field Day at the Farm of Dr. Broome.  It was a great day to spend in the sunshine!  We learned about NRCS programs, FSA funding, record keeping tips, and pasture establishment and maintenance for horses.


Another Field Day is scheduled to be held at Beaumont.  details forthcoming…
