A regional hay school in southwestern Missouri will focus on forage selection, nutrient requirements and dry-hay management as well as other topics.
University of Missouri Extension will conduct a regional hay school at two locations in southwestern Missouri later this month. It will be held Nov. 29-30 at the Williams Agriculture Building at Crowder College in Neosho and be repeated Nov. 30-Dec. 1 at the Polk County fairgrounds in Bolivar.
The school is designed for livestock and horse producers who have haying equipment or have their hay custom harvested. Topics will include selecting the best forages for the region, nutrition requirements for livestock, hay tests, dry-hay management from cutting to baling, hay economics, reducing storage and feeding losses and more.
