Crawford County Cattlemen Beef Finishing Tour

The Crawford County cattlemen are planning to tour two beef finishing operations in the Bellevue Ohio area on March 3rd and they would like to extend an invitation to anyone across the state to join them for the tours. The first stop will be 10:00 am at Lepley’s new slatted floor finishing barn; located at 4084 Prairie Rd Bellevue. From there we will be traveling a few miles to Erf Farm’s, 4516 Yingling Rd Bellevue, to see a dairy beef finishing operation. They purchase deacon calves and raise them through finishing using some the latest technology to feed the deacon calves.

From there we will travel to York Animal Hospital (Dr Mike Mull) 1184 W Main St Bellevue, where we will have lunch with Kevin Elder ODA LEPP. He will be discussing Lake Erie issues and manure hauling regulations. We plan to finish by 1:30 pm.

We will be leaving from Family Farm & Home, 2460 E. Mansfield Street in Bucyrus at 9:00 am, and will have a bus available there if people want a ride with us from Bucyrus. Once it is full we can travel as a caravan to the first stop to keep the group together.

Please RSVP by March 1st, or for more information, contact OSU Extension  in Crawford County at 419-562-8731 or hartschuh.11@osu.edu. For information or directions during the day of the tour call 419-561-1216.
