The public is invited to attend an educational field tour each year (usually in July) at the University of Wyoming’s Powell Research and Extension Center at 747 Road 9.
The purpose of this event is to bring farmers, ranchers, gardeners, industry people, extension educators, and University of Wyoming researchers together to visit and interact with each other, share ideas and opinions about different cultural practices. Also farmers and ranchers will have a chance to ask questions and get answers one-on-one. “Seeing is believing” is another purpose of the field day, during which everybody will have the opportunity to visit the ongoing research plots and see first-hand what works and what doesn’t.
Programs vary from year to year and may consist of high tunnel for vegetable crop production, strip tillage in RR-sugarbeet, the impact of calf weaning date and management on quality and economics, skin cancer prevention in agriculture, solar/wind powered livestock watering demo trailer, and spatial variability of oil moisture under sprinkler irrigation are examples of topics that are discussed and toured during this event. Time can be reserved for individual, small groups, and special tours.
