July was a busy month at Eden Shale. We applied nitrogen to some fields for stockpiling and continued to bale hay and move to barns when it wasn't raining. The Pasture to Plate program had its mid-point session this month and discussed carcass ultrasound, nutrition, health, environmental practices, and live animal evaluation.
Hello, my name is Dan Miller and I work for the Kentucky Beef Network. KBN took over operation of the Eden Shale Farm in April of 2013. We are using the 961 acre farm as a demonstration and learning center for beef cattle producers. This blog serves as a place to document daily farm activity and host discussions about the demonstrations being implemented. I hope you find this information useful and that you come visit us at Eden Shale Farm.
