Regional Hay School set March 28

Missouri

South Central Missouri hay producers will have an opportunity to improve their hay making skills at a two-day hay school in Howell County from 6 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. on March 28 and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 29 at the Howell County Extension Center in West Plains.

"There is a lot at stake when making hay and many things to consider to make it worth the effort and to be profitable," said Sarah Kenyon, a University of Missouri Extension agronomy specialist who will lead three sessions. "The program will give producers the fundamentals to reach the goal of being profitable."

This seven hour, non-credit course will cover all aspects of hay and baleage production. The course is specifically designed for livestock and horse producers who may already have their own hay equipment or have hay custom harvested on their land.

Conference speakers will address which forages are best for this region, nutritional requirements for cows and horses, hay tests, from cutting to baling hay, fertility management, hay economics, and hay storage.

There is a fee of $25 to attend the program. Registration is required by March 22 and can be made by calling the Howell County Extension Center at 417-256-2391.

A minimum of 20 enrollments are needed in order to hold the class.
