Pasture workshop

SEQUIM — The Clallam Conservation District is partnering with Coastal Farm & Ranch to offer a free pasture renovation workshop at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Topics will include seasonal pasture management, rotational grazing, fertilizing, liming and overseeding at Coastal Farm & Ranch, 990 E. Washington St., Building A, Suite 101.

Due to space limitations, preregistration is required. To register, call 360-775-3747 or email [email protected]

Fall is an important time of year for pasture grasses, as poor management can greatly reduce production during the next growing season, according to a news release.

It is also a great time to test pasture soil fertility, and the conservation district offers a low-cost soil testing program of $20 per soil test, the release said.

Workshop participants can bring a soil sample to the workshop that will be packaged and mailed to an analytical laboratory.

District planners will follow up with workshop participants to discuss test results and fertilizer recommendations at an unspecified date.

Directions for collecting a soil sample are provided on the district’s website at
