MU Extension Offers Free Events On Pasture And Beef Management After Drought

KEYTESVILLE, MO.
   “Many pastures in Missouri were overgrazed due to forage shortages caused by extreme weather in 2018,” says Dhruba Dhakal, University of Missouri Extension agronomy specialist. “Forage producers will see lasting effects on spring pasture, beef cattle nutrition and reproduction.”
   Producers can learn about pasture recovery and repair during MU Extension workshops in April in Chariton and Randolph counties, Dhakal says. They will hear how to manage pastures, soil nutrients, weeds and grazing.
   In Keytesville, the Jump-Starting Spring Pasture Workshop is 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, April 9, at the MU Extension Center in Chariton County, 306 S. Cherry St.
   The same workshop will be held 6-8 p.m. Thursday, April 11, at the Randolph County USDA Service Center, 2995 County Road 1325, Moberly.
   MU Extension agronomist Valerie Tate tells how to manage pastures after drought. Livestock specialist Heather Conrow offers ways to jump-start beef reproduction by estrous cycle synchronization.
   Register by April 8. Call 660-288-3239, or send email to dhakald@missouri.edu or smithheather@missouri.edu. ∆
