Spring Pasture Renovation

As we look forward to warmer weather and longer days, it is no secret that the weather this past year has challenged farmers in the area. As a result, many pastures may be in poor condition heading into the growing months. For farmers who have considered renovating their fescue pastures, the poor pasture conditions may make this a great time to move forward with renovation plans. Full article>

Ranchers Rules of Thumb
Was Grandpa Right?

Many ranchers and livestock producers use Rules of Thumb to guide decisions on their operations. Often the Rules have been passed down from previous generations. We have collected 6 pages of ranching Rules of Thumb over the last several years from ranchers all over the country. This workshop will take a look at these Rules and utilize the tools developed on the Wyoming Ranch Tools website to help producers analyze which Rules of Thumb might make sense on their ranch. Three locations to choose from:

March 19, 6 pm, Andrew County Youth Building, 201 South Banyon, Savannah, MO
March 20, 6 pm, Mildred Litton Center, 10780 Liv 235, Chillicothe, MO
March 21, 10 am, Ray County Library Community Room, 215 E Lexington St., Richmond, MO

2018 Cash Rental Rates in Missouri

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports that 35 percent of Missouri farmland is rented. That means that about 9.8 million acres of Missouri agricultural land is rented. To help both landowners and farmers, the University of Missouri has periodically surveyed landowners and farmers to detect trends in rental rates. The latest survey was taken in the summer of 2018.
