The annual Christian County Livestock and Forage Conference will be held at 6 p.m., Tuesday, April 8 at the Clever High School Commons and Performing Arts Center.

This long-running educational event, organized by the University of Missouri Extension, provides area residents with a wealth of research-based agriculture information.

Topics to be covered during the evening include: Missouri Cattle Market Outlook; Herd Health and Getting the Most for Your Health Dollars; the Missouri Beef Check Off; and, short presentations on NRCS programs, pasture leases, and pasture and forage insurance.

“At this annual event we try to address timely topics of interest to producers in Christian County. The planning committee has put together another great program this year,” said Dr. Gordon Carriker, agriculture business specialist, University of Missouri Extension.

The program is open to the public, whether or not they reside in Christian County. However, Carriker does request those planning to attend call the Christian County Extension Center at (417) 581-3558 to reserve a meal.

University of Missouri Extension programs focus on the high-priority needs of Missourians. Each county extension center, with oversight by locally elected and appointed citizens, is your local link to practical education on almost anything.
