Lee Tesdell (center) with his sons Omar (left) and Ramsey pose together after Lee was presented with Practical Farmers’ 2019 Farmland Owner Legacy Award on July 10. Lee is proud of his farm’s long history and heritage. Purchased in 1884 by his great-grandfather, he is the fourth generation to steward Tesdell Century Farm near Slater.
Alan will take us to his rye fields that provide spring calving pastures and forage for grazing where we’ll try to spot calves in the tall rye. We’ll also learn about harvesting rye to make stored feed and see a demo of Alan making ryelage.
