STOCKTON, Mo. — “Native grasses can be a useful grazing tool for cattle in the summer months,” says Patrick Davis MU Extension Livestock Field Specialist. Therefore, MU Extension is cooperating with NRCS, Missouri Department of Conservation and the Nature Conservancy of Missouri to provide a native grass pasture walk on June 28 th .
This pasture walk will begin at 6:00 p. m. at Schaaf Farms northeast of El Dorado Springs, Mo. “There will be a brief discussion by the landowner about cattle and forage management on the operation,” says Davis. Furthermore, there will be representatives there from the cooperating organizations to provide discussion as well as answer questions related to the cattle grazing management on native grasses.
There will be a light meal offered at the pasture walk. Register for the free pasture walk in order to attend by June 25th by contacting the Cedar County MU Extension Center at (417) 276-3313 or online at https://extension.missouri.edu/events/native-grass-pasture-walk.
