Workshop offers help for small acreage owners

Steven L. Miller
University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service

Small-acreage owners can hear from natural resource experts at a small-acreage, hands-on workshop in Wheatland. The workshop is from 3 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 18, in the Platte Valley Bank Community Room at 200 16th St.

Seminar topics are hands-on pasture management; grazing and mowing a few acres; tree selection, care, and windbreak design; and weed control and management.

The workshop is sponsored by University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service, the Platte County Resource District and Barnyards & Backyards, a quarterly magazine about rural living in Wyoming.

Land parcels up to 49 acres are the fastest growing farm size in Wyoming, according to the 2002 U.S. Department of Agriculture Census. Holdings with at least $1,000 in annual agricultural production are considered a farm by the USDA.

Dinner will be provided by the Platte County Resource District. For more information, contact Dallas Mount, University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension Service educator, at (307) 322-3667 or mail to:, or visit v
