The event also features an agriculture-related trade show, a classic tractor display, a free beef dinner on Friday night at 6:00 p.m. and a free Governor’s Style Luncheon on Saturday at noon. There is no pre-registration required and there is no cost to attend.

Nationally known speakers on equine, beef cattle, forages, stock dogs and more are also a part of the Symposium and program details may be found at missourilivestock.com or by calling Garry Mathes at 660-341-6625 or the Adair County Extension Center at 660-665-9866.

According to Garry L. Mathes, Chair of the Missouri Livestock Symposium Planning Committee, the 2013 Sheep and Meat Goat programs on Saturday, December 7th include the following: Mike Caskey from Pipestone, Minnesota will give three talks—“Making Lambing Easier,” “Building the right Ewe for You,” and “Managing Ewe Feed Costs.” Stan Potratz of Washington, Iowa, will address “The Future of the U.S. Sheep Industries—All Four of Them”; Dr. Niki Whitley of North Carolina A&T State University will talk on “Parasite Resistance” and Dr. Michael Seipel of Truman State University will talk on “Grazing Sheep on Annual Forages: Preliminary On-farm Research”.

In the Meat Goat Section, Dr. Steve Hart from Langston University will give two talks—one on “Vegetation Management with Goats” and a second on “Look Before you Leap into Goats.” Dr. Charlotte Clifford-Rathert from Lincoln University will talk on “Marketing Goats”; Dr. Niki Whitley of North Carolina A&T State University on “The Art and Science of Feeding Goats”; and Linda Coffey from the National Center for Appropriate Technology in Fayettville, Arkansas will talk on “Hitting the Target: Whole Farm Planning.” The Meat Goat Section will then conclude with all speakers participating in a panel discussion and Q&A.

Hours for the 2013 Missouri Livestock Symposium are 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm on Friday, December 6th and from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, December 7th. In addition to the free beef dinner at 6:00 pm on Friday night and the free trade show, Dr. Garry Lacefield from the University of Kentucky, will be the keynote speaker when he talks on “Gratitude and Patriotism: A Personal Prospective.”

Kirksville Veterinarian for 39 years, David Moore, will be inducted into the northeast Missouri livestock hall of fame that Friday night.
Mathes also points out that other talks of interest to both sheep and meat goat producers can be found in the Forages and Stock Dog Sections of the Symposium. Lyle East of Clinton, Missouri , gives three talks on working dogs including “Stock Dog Training—It’s Not Rocket Science,” “Pups vs. Started Dogs,” and “Speaking the Language.”
