April 17, 2018 Field Day

Livestock Management: Goats and Dexter Cattle 

Dr. Richard Browning, TSU livestock specialist and researcher

Join us for a day on the farm. Dress appropriately as this event is in an outdoor pavilion.

Preregistration is recommended. Workshop fee includes lunch ($20 preregistered, $25 at the door). 

This workshop is on the farm adjacent to the main campus of Tennessee State University, (see directions on left panel). Once you enter the agriculture complex, follow the driveway to the rear of the property, turning left at the "T" intersection. Parking is on the left in the grassy area. You will be required to walk a short distance further up the driveway to the pavilion.

Dr. Browning also trains graduate students for a career in agriculture. His students will join us for this educational day at the field. It's springtime. Expect kids and possibly calves to be among the crowd!
