Noxious weed help

Asked May 4, 2017, 4:19 PM EDT

Hello, my name is Challis Lockner and I am looking for some resources regarding noxious weeds. I have 7 acres with cattle and a field becoming very populated by noxious and invasive weeds. Any help regarding safe removal or prevention would be great.

Hello Challis,
I'm not a pasture management expert, but can help you get started. I hope these online resources will be helpful: http://smallfarms.oregonstate.edu/weeds-plants-pests.

Optimizing pasture health through good nutrient management and rotational grazing can often help to reduce issues with noxious weeds. Some of these resources may also be helpful: http://smallfarms.oregonstate.edu/Nutrientmanagement, and http://smallfarms.oregonstate.edu/pasture-grazing-management.

When you've had a chance to look into these resources don't hesitate to contact gene.pirelli@oregonstate.edu with follow-up questions. He is a pasture management specialist.

All the best,
