The annual Christian County Livestock and Forage Conference will be held from 6 p.m. - 9:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 7 at the Clever High School Commons, Clever, Mo.
This long-running educational event, organized by the University of Missouri Extension, provides area residents with a wealth of research-based agriculture information.
This year's event will feature four guest speakers on four important topics. "New Antibiotic Rules and How They Affect You," will be presented by Craig Payne, University of Missouri. "Predator Control for Missouri Landowners," will be presented by James Dixon, Missouri Department of Conservation.
"Ammonium Nitrate vs. Urea and Monitoring Forages for Quality" will be presented by Tim Schnakenberg, agronomy specialist with University of Missouri Extension. Followed by "Estate Planning Basics for Farmers," by Gordon Carriker, agriculture business specialist, University of Missouri Extension.
"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 Carriker.
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 by March 31 to reserve a meal.
