Ohio Beef Day coming to Muskingum County July 16

Field days have long been a great educational tool used to show farmers new technologies and management practices. OSU Extension is pleased to announce the return of a statewide Ohio Beef Cattle Field Day and Tour. It has been several years since an Ohio Beef Field Day has been held, and the program will make it reappearance in Muskingum County on Saturday July 16, 2022.

Pre-registration for the program is required and can be completed online at by July 7. The program fee is $10 per person to cover costs. An information folder, refreshments, lunch, and Beef Quality Assurance certification will be provided to all attendees. More detail will be forthcoming as the date approaches but in the meantime if there are any questions regarding the program contact Garth Ruff, Beef Cattle Field Specialist at or 740-305-3201.

We hope to see you in Muskingum County on July 16!
