The Weston session will feature a unique opportunity to visit Green Dirt Farm, an operation
managing forages for sheep. Green Dirt Farm processes milk from sheep into cheese and
yogurt and finishes lambs for direct marketing.

The sessions offers the chance to exchange information on topics such as: The art and
science of grazing management, evaluation of farm resources, economics of grazing management, livestock nutrition, grazing system layout and design, pasture growth, forages, soil fertility, fence and water systems, winter feeding of stockpiled forages, and no winter feeding.

Tuition will be $100 to $130 per person with an additional fee IF late registration. The tuition covers costs including mileage reimbursement for instructors, meals, refreshments, on-farm tour of equipment, fence and water system demonstration, materials and references such as Missouri Grazing Manual, Forages and Weeds of Pastures, and a grazing stick.

Other publications provided include Electric Fencing and Watering Systems for Serious Grazers.

Registration at each event at Weston is limited to 30 people. For information, contact your local NRCS county office or Curtis Walker with the Natural Resources Conservation Service at 816-232-6555 extension 139 or at curt.walker@mo.usda.gov.
