Stone County Dairy Day is Feb. 25


The Stone County Extension Center will host the eighth annual Stone County Dairy Day from 11 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., Feb. 25 at the Crane Christian Church Community Center in Crane, Mo.

"The meeting will focus on topics relevant to today's dairy farmer," said Tim Schnakenberg, an agronomy specialist with University of Missouri Extension.

Wesley Tucker, an agriculture business specialist with MU Extension, will provide an overview of the dairy market outlook during the conference.

Dr. Scott Poock, a veterinarian at the University of Missouri, will share ideas to help manage somatic cell count.

Schnakenberg will provide an overview of the latest developments on Roundup Ready alfalfa and Patrick Davis will introduce MU Extension's new MAESTRO program which is designed to increase energy efficiency on the farm.

At this years' program, a panel of farmers--James Penn, John Staiger and Todd Groves--will discuss challenges and strategies in the dairy industry today.

"Dairy farmers will benefit from this meeting because we plan to cover a wide array of current topics in a short time-frame," said Schnakenberg.

A barbecue lunch is provided by the program sponsors: Genex Cooperative, Flory Dairy Equipment and Stone County Farm Bureau.

There is no charge to attend but pre-registration is necessary to make adequate arrangements.

Contact the MU Extension Center in Galena at 417-357-6812 to preregister by Feb. 23.
