Kentucky Forages on YouTube
UK Extension hosts a YouTube channel with many videos helpful for pasture and hay production. Videos include presentations from grazing conferences and field days around Kentucky. Go to YouTube and search for “Kentucky Forages,” or visit youtube.com/user/VTForages.
The Heart of America Grazing Conference was held in Northern Kentucky this fall and included a presentation on the future of livestock fencing systems. Over the last several years, many companies have been working on developing virtual fencing systems. The technology is much like invisible pet fencing. It is a pretty amazing concept for the future of livestock production. Check out the presentation beginning at minute 22:46 at youtu.be/MQUfNZPxoiQ?t=1366.
