News : University Extension to hold drought response meetings for farmers and ranchers
Posted by John on 2012/10/22 13:40:00 (332 reads) News by the same author

In response to the drought, the University of Missouri Extension Agricultural Specialists of Northwest Missouri are planning a series of meetings for agricultural producers to be held at seven locations in our region during the first two weeks of November.


Meetings will be held in Albany, Cameron, Maryville, Trenton, St. Joseph, Chillicothe, and Mound City.

The MU Agricultural Specialists will be addressing topics such as the winter and long-term weather outlook, managing the beef herd through drought, using available forages, early spring forages to get us to spring grasses, water systems, temporary feed storage, no-till, financial impacts of drought and how to adjust, impact of drought on perennial plants around the farmstead, herbicide carryover, fertilizer carryover, aflatoxin, and other county Extension resources.

We are entering a period of uncertainty for agricultural producers. Even if the drought ends, the ramifications of our dry summer will follow us into 2013. If the drought continues, the decision-making process for 2013 will be even more complex. This meeting will be a good opportunity for agricultural producers to seek options as we move through this period of uncertainty.

If you desire further information on this or any other topic contact your local University of Missouri Extension center. University of Missouri Extension programs are open to all.
