Intensive Grazing Management School

University of Missouri Extension will host a Management Intensive Grazing School October 10, 11 & 12 at the Reynolds County Educational Building in Centerville, MO.  The three-day program will include guest speakers covering the topics of grazing system layout and design, watering systems, fence systems, soil fertility, livestock nutrition, and forage growth and quality.  Additionally, extensive farm tours will be included to allow participants to receive training on grazing system utilization.

Your local Soil and Water Conservation District has a program to cost share in “Planned Grazing systems (SDP-3).” To participate in this program you are required to attend an approved grazing school. For more information on this practice or other cost share programs call your local Soil and Water Conservation District at 573-663-2262.

Space is limited for this program, and registration along with full payment is required by September 21.  For more information, please contact Joyce Pyles, Office Manager at 573-648-1035 or email at
