    More Grass on Fewer Acres (Session 1 of 3)

    Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019, 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

    Description:

    Pasture Improvements and/or Renovation to improve grass production on your farm.

    Forages are the backbone to the cattle industry. This program has been created to assist landowners in making sound decisions about pasture improvements while allowing for greater carrying capacities over longer periods of time. This is intended to be three two-hour programs over three nights with a variety of speakers.

    Handouts relevant to the topics will be provided. The cost will be $10.00 per night or $25.00 for all sessions. (Proceeds to be used to support travel of the speakers and handout materials.) To enroll please contact the Laclede County MU Extension Office at 417-532-4587 or email Jonetta Shaver to hold your spot.

    Seating will be limited so please register as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly. Cut-off date for registration will be November 15, 2019.
