State Farm Youth Advisory BoardThe Cape Fear High School Agriculture and Natural Resources Academy received a State Farm Youth Advisory Board Grant in the amount of $49,012.60.

Title: Return of the Native Grasslands for Cattle Production

Description:    The goal of this project is to revert commercial grown pastures back to native grasslands for regional cattle production. Increasing native grassland forages would decrease cattle producers’ dependency on commercial fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides. Furthermore, producers can reduce their use of biological fertilizers by applying poultry and hog waste on their fields, thus limiting nitrogen levels in the forage and soil. Changing the grazing system will allow the soil to recover from the overuse of chemicals and biological waste. Increase soil retention naturally by using native grasses, thus increasing wildlife habitat, providing natural biological weed control and providing a palatable forage crop.
