As a result of the continuing drought, beef cattle producers are facing decisions regarding their crops, pastures, and cow herds. Even after the drought is over and crops are out of the field, the producers are expected to continue to deal with the lasting implications of this summer's drought.


University Extension is planning meetings next month in three northwest Missouri locations-- one of them Gallatin—regarding “forages and drought, the management and recovery.”

The Gallatin meeting is August 8th at the Daviess
County Library starting at 7 o'clock in the evening. Other sessions are August 6th at a fairgrounds building in Rock Port and August 13th at the DeKalb County Courthouse in Maysville. There is a cost of ten dollars per person.

A “focus on forages” meeting is July 31st at 6 o'clock at the Hundley-Whaley farm in Albany.
The cost of the Albany meeting is 15 dollars which includes an evening dinner.

Persons can contact University Extension specialists to make reservations to attend any of the drought meetings.

Topics at the Rock Port, Gallatin and Maysville meetings include pasture management, nitrate testing, emergency forages and feed stuffs, economic strategies to weather the drought, cover crops, and re-seeding of pastures.
