Creating more forage per acre, a higher-quality product and with more plant diversity to increase grazing potential is the goal of a University of Missouri Extension program dealing with pasture/hay management. In April, these topics will improve farmers’ grazing and/or baling operations:

• “Kick Starting Your Pasture for Extended Grazing Potential” — 10 a.m. April 12 via Zoom (Jill Scheidt, MU field specialist).

• “Pasture Reseeding and/or Renovation for the Spring and Fall Grazing Seasons” — 10 a.m. April 19 via Zoom (Tim Schnakenberg, MU field specialist).

• “Fall/Winter Weed Control and Stockpiling for Extended Grazing Potential” — 10 a.m. April 26 via Zoom (Sarah Kenyon, MU field specialist).

The programs offered will be taught by the MU Extension personnel in agronomy from various parts of southwest Missouri. To register, go to or call Hickory County MU Extension at 417-745-6767.
