    91st Annual Barry County Soils & Crops conference is certain to have something for everyone!
    Topics determined by a group of local agriculturalist include:

    "How to read you hay test" will be explained by local ruminant nutritionist, Reagan Bluel from MU Extension of Barry County. Bring your current hay test to determine if your herd needs supplementation for this winter. She’ll share the stage with local businessman Mike Hickinbotham, from Custom labs, to complete the discussion by describing "How to determine which commodity most affordably covers the herd’s needed".
    Eldon Cole will present "Results of 50 steer feed outs", to help beef producers determine how frequently it is profitable to retain ownership.
    Finally, Peter Scharf, MU state soil specialist, has been invited from campus to address "Production limitations experienced locally due to lack of potassium and sulfur in our soils".

    Dinner will feature catering from local favorite, John Sullivan, and begins promptly at 6 PM.
