The Virginia Tech Shenandoah Valley Agricultural Research and Extension Center will host its biennial Field Day virtually on Wednesday.

This event will feature videos of current research projects at the Shenandoah Valley AREC and a panel of faculty members, who will answer questions after each presentation.

The topics covered during the field day will include establishing and protecting trees in pasture, establishing biodiverse pasture systems for pollinators and cattle, new herbicide options for pasture weed control – while still preserving clover – cow and calf performance on summer-stockpiled tall fescue pastures, supplementing yeast-derived products to feedlot cattle, the Asian longhorned tick, standardized performance analyses for benchmarking cow herd productivity, and the Smartfarm Innovation Network.
