Day-Range Poultry on Display at June 8 Field Day
Learn about Seelye Brook Farms’ system of day-range pastured poultry (above) during a field day and farm tour from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sat., June 8, at 22390 Rum River Blvd, Oak Grove.
Seelye Brook won a Minnesota Dept. of Ag grant in partnership with SFA Livestock & Grazing Specialist Kent Solberg to develop the day-range system and observe differences between day-range and pastured poultry who stay in mobile pens. View both systems side-by-side and learn about the study’s first year, labor and cost differences, nutritional differences of the birds and more.
A farm tour will ensue that includes a flock of American Tunis sheep and Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs. This event is free and open to all. Activities for kids and refreshments will be available; please do not bring dogs or other pets. The farm driveway is directly across from 224th Ave.
