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.
The Cedar County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), University of Missouri Extension and 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 county SWCD cost share or NRCS cost share through the environmental quality incentives program (EQIP) to implement a MiG system.
For more info on the MiG school contact one of the following: Patrick Davis, University of Missouri Extension (417) 276-3313 or Stephanie Auffert, Cedar County Soil and Water Conservation District, (417) 276-3388, ext. 3.
In order to attend contact the Cedar County NRCS/SWCD office at (417) 276-3388 ext. 3 prior to the deadline to register. Registration is limited so if you are interested in attending contact the Cedar County Soil and Water Conservation District office as soon as possible.
