UW Bulletin Highlights Agriculture Research across Wyoming

August 20, 2014

Cattle, sheep, traditional and alternative farm crops, weed control and fertilization are among research projects covered in the fourth annual University of Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station (WAES) Field Days Bulletin.

This year’s bulletin also highlights studies on vegetable, herb and grape production in Wyoming as well as season-extension systems, such as high and low tunnels.

“The intent of the WAES Field Days Bulletin is to demonstrate the vast array of activities that may be of interest to a wide variety of citizens,” says WAES Director Bret Hess.

Articles summarize more than 90 completed or in-progress research projects at the four WAES research and extension centers near Laramie, Lingle, Sheridan and Powell; at the UW College of Agriculture and Natural Resources; or at participating farms and ranches in Wyoming.

“Authors address the high points of their specific projects and provide contact information in case readers wish to receive more in-depth information about a particular topic,” Hess says.

The 2014 WAES Field Days Bulletin (along with the 2011–2013 publications) is posted on the WAES website at Click on the Publications link on the left side of the page. The publication is under Important Links.
