CARROLLTON, Mo. — Livestock specialist Jenna Monnig will be hosting an upcoming drought management meeting for beef cattle producers in Carroll County. The meeting will be held July 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the Carroll County Extension building basement.

Monnig will go over various topics, such as pasture management, alternate forage options, nitrate toxicity and culling decisions.

The drought management meeting is open to the public and is free of charge. Producers who are interested in attending the meeting are encouraged to RSVP by July 20. To reserve your seat call 660-542-1792 or email Monnig at monnigm@missouri.edu.
