Management Intensive Grazing School – Appleton City, MO

May 7 - May 9


Efficient forage management and utilization is important to the profitability of a livestock operation. The best way to promote efficient forage management and utilization in a livestock operation is by incorporating management intensive grazing practices.

To educate livestock producers on these practices MU Extension, Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), and the MO Forage and Grasslands Council are cooperating to provide a Management Intensive Grazing School:

May 7-9 at the Forest Park Building, 206 East 5th Street, Appleton City, MO 64724. Classes will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at approximately 4:30 p.m. daily. This school is applicable and will provide education in livestock and forage management for all grazing species, though cattle will be emphasized.

Educational topics will include: The “Art and Science” of Grazing, Soils Management and Fertility, Plant Growth, Forage Quality and Persistence, Fencing and Water Systems, Matching Livestock and Forage Resources, Meeting Nutritional Needs of Livestock from Pasture, Layout and Design of Grazing Systems, Economics of Management-intensive Grazing and Outdoor Field Exercises and Tour of Producers’ Farms.

Furthermore, this program is required to receive MO SWCD cost share funding and may help in receiving NRCS cost share funding for grazing system development. Registration and payment are required to attend this event by May 2.
