A free workshop that discusses which forages and feed sources can accumulate nitrates will be held July 25 at Halfway High School, Halfway, MO.
Other topics of the Forage Nitrates Workshop will include: what conditions will increase nitrate levels, symptoms and treatments of nitrate-affected cattle, and management options for forages as well as cattle.
Participants can bring fresh forage samples for “quick” nitrate tests or to be submitted for quantitative analysis. Materials needed to submit a sample will be available during the workshop or can be picked up at a local University of Missouri Extension office. Participants can also bring test results for help in interpreting them.
