Meeting to focus on 'Overcoming the 2011 Weather'


The drought in southwest Missouri this summer caused many headaches for farmers this summer. Now, those same farmers are also facing winter with little forage and hay on hand to feed their livestock.

The University of Missouri Extension is offering a special program for farmers who want to learn about "Overcoming the 2011 Weather."

The program will be held at 7 p.m., on Oct. 25 at the Community Presbyterian Church, 271 Main St., Forsyth, Mo.

The program will focus on how to deal with high nitrate levels in feeds, precautions for nitrates and prussic acid, how to conserve hay supplies, supplementing pasture and hay and tips for buying hay.

"The drought has taken a major toll on beef and dairy farms in the area. High nitrates and short hay supplies will continue to plague these farms as we go into winter. Farmers need to know the precautions to take and take extra steps to conserve their feed supplies." said Tim Schnakenberg, an agronomy specialist with University of Missouri Extension based in Galena.
