Regional Management Intensive Grazing School-Stockton, Mo

  • Promoted by:
    Forages
  • Face to Face

Description

Economically meeting livestock nutritional needs is important to livestock operation profitability.  One way to optimize feed costs is through management intensive grazing (MiG) which leads to optimum livestock operation forage consumption and utilization.  Livestock producers should attend this MiG school to gain knowledge that can be implemented on their operation to optimize livestock forage grazing management, which promotes profitability and sustainability.         

The Cedar County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), University of Missouri Extension and the Natural Resources and Conservation Service (NRCS) are sponsoring a MiG School.  The school provides classroom instruction as well as hands-on farm demonstration to educate livestock producers on using MiG to promote optimum grazing management and profit potential for their livestock operation.  Furthermore, participants that attend all school sessions are eligible for Mo. State SWCD cost share and attendance helps in the ranking process to receive NRCS cost share through the environmental quality incentives program (EQIP) to implement a MiG system. 

The three-day MiG school will be held on October 4-6, 2022.
