Travis Mitchell – Area Livestock and Forages Agent

September 13, 2022

The summer months have been busy in Saluda county as livestock & forage producers have worked tirelessly harvesting hay and silage and weaning their fall-born calf crop.  As we transition into the fall, we begin preparing our clientele for new challenges they may face.  The Saluda County Cattleman’s Association held a meeting on September 6th to prepare producers for controlling fall army worms.  Clemson Extension Agent Brian Beer gave a detailed presentation on army worm identification, scouting tips, and control options.  Over 90 producers were in attendance for the meeting.

The Saluda County 4-H Livestock shows will take place on September 14th and 15th at the Central Milk Producers Show & Sale Arena.  Both will be well attended as youth from across South Carolina exhibited their prize show animals.
