MU Extension Forage and Livestock meetings
August 11 @ 12:00 pm
“Proper management of pastures now and development of grazing resources as cattle producers enter the fall and winter months is key to operation productivity and profitability,” says Davis. Therefore, during the August 11th online MU Extension Forage-Livestock Hour meeting, Stacy Hamilton with the MU Animal Science Department in Columbia, Mo. will discuss “winter feeding pastures.”
“Weaning calves will be upon us soon and proper management during that time is important to cattle operation productivity and profitability,” says Davis. Therefore, during the August 25th online MU Extension Forage-Livestock Hour meeting, MU Extension State Beef Cattle Nutrition Specialist Eric Bailey will provide a presentation discussing calf weaning in times of drought.
“These meetings are also an opportunity to answer your questions related to your forage and livestock farming operation,” says Davis. If you have questions you can register in the forage and livestock section at https://ipm.missouri.edu/townhalls/. Upon registration your questions will be looked at by an MU Extension Ag Specialist and answered either by email, phone or during the next meeting. Upon registration you will receive a ZOOM link to enter the meeting.
“An alternate way to observe the meetings is via YouTube Live,” says Davis. Just go to https://www.youtube.com/user/MUIPM during the scheduled time and you will be able to watch the meetings live.
