Description:

St. Clair County Soil and Water Conservation District, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, University of Missouri Extension, and Missouri Forage and Grassland Council will hold a grazing school on management intensive grazing. The school includes a tour of grazing systems at the John and Thomas Stewart farms near Lowry City. “This school should help livestock producers cut costs in their operation through better livestock, grazing and pasture management,” said MU Extension livestock specialist Patrick Davis. MU Extension regional agriculture specialists and soil and water conservation district and NRCS employees will discuss aspects of a grazing system. Topics include development, management and economics of grazing and livestock management within a grazing system. Another benefit of the school is that those who attend all of the sessions may participate in SWCD’s planned grazing system cost-share program, said Davis. “Furthermore, by attending the school it gives a better chance to participate in the NRCS EQIP program, which provides incentives for implemented soil and water conservation practices,” he said.
