Field Day to be Saturday

Sheep dog trials, tours and lunch are on the program at the Adams Ranch off Coffeen Avenue Saturday when the Sheridan Research and Extension Center hosts this year's Field Day.

Brian Mealor, who's director of the center, said the sheep dog trials are new to the event this year.

The event will start at 8 a.m. at the Watt Building just south of Sheridan College, and there will be about six or seven handlers with their dogs. Mealor said these are some of the best handlers and dogs in the country.

He said the trials will be followed by tours of the extension center's different research projects that are ongoing on the Adams Ranch south of the Watt Building.

He said the tours will be followed by lunch, and those attending will be able to visit one-on-one with the researchers.

Mealor said the annual field day is an outreach for the extension center, a chance to provide base-level information on the research the center is doing.

Mealor said while the field days have been held on Saturdays in the past, this is the first year that the event has been held on a Saturday during Rodeo Week in Sheridan.

The annual field days alternate between the Watt Center and the Research and Extension Center's farm at Wyarno.
