The program will be taught by MU Extension, NRCS, and a producer with an existing system.  Specific topics will include the Art & Science of MIG;  Evaluating Resources; Soil Structure, Function, and Fertility; Plant Growth, Forage Quality, and Persistence; Animal Nutrition; Matching Forages and Animals: Yield Distribution and Animal Requirements, Watering Systems, Fencing, Layout and Design; Grazing Economics; and Grazier’s Arithmetic.  A farm tour will finish out the training.

This very interactive program and will prepare the participant to start their own rotational grazing system.  For producers to get state cost-share assistance from the Soil and Water Conservation District to implement a Management Intensive Grazing system, they must attend a grazing school. 

A minimum of 15 attendees will be necessary to hold the class with a maximum class size of 25.
