    Vernon County Mo. Fairgrounds
    1488 East Ashland Street , Nevada MO map...

    Description:

    One of the highest input costs for a cattle operation is meeting cattle daily nutrient needs. One way to reduce the cost is to increase grazing forage consumption and reduce grain-based supplements. Two ways to do that include increasing forage growth and utilization efficiency as well as forage quality consumed. “You may ask how do I do this and the answer is management intensive grazing (MiG),” says Patrick Davis MU Extension Regional Livestock Field Specialist.
    University of Missouri Extension agriculture specialists, Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) employees and Missouri State Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD) work together to educate the public on utilizing MiG in their cattle operation through regional grazing schools. “These schools provide classroom instruction as well as hands-on farm demonstrations to educate cattle producers on using MiG to improve grazing management and profit potential of their cattle operation,” says Davis. Furthermore, school attendees are eligible for county SWCD cost share or NRCS cost share through environmental quality incentives program (EQIP) to implement a MiG system.

    Registration:

    Pre-registration is required for each parent.



    A $25 per-person fee, payable by cash or check to Buchanan County Extension, can be paid in advance, or immediately prior to the start of class.



    To register and for more information: Call the Buchanan County Extension Office at 816.279.1691.



     What else do I need to know?



    ? You and the other parent must attend on separate dates.



    ? Childcare is not provided so children are not allowed to attend.



    ? Sign-in and sign-out is required. Plan to arrive 10 minutes early and to stay for the entire two hour session.
