Hay Testing

Do you know the nutrient value of your hay or are you just guessing? Knowing the nutrient value of your hay supply allows producers to make informed decisions on how much supplemental feed is necessary to meet the nutritional needs of your animals. The University of Missouri Extension in McDonald County offers forage testing as a fee based service to our clients. Mailing materials and probes, or hay samplers, for forage testing by commercial labs are available in the office.


Don't guess . . . Soil test!

Soil tests are essential for productive gardens and fields.     
Fee: $15.00 per soil sample
