Learning the proper methods to use fire to control brush and remove accumulated cover, while improving the growing conditions in pastures and hayfields is called a controlled or prescribed burn. A FREE Workshop will be offered in early January near Linneus to discuss the planning and process for a prescribed or controlled burn. Valarie Tate from the University of Missouri Extension Program says the Prescribed Burning for Grassland Management workshop will cover several important points.
The workshop will be held Saturday, January 5th at the 9:00 am at the MU Forage Systems Research Center.
If you would like to attend, they ask that you register for the free program by calling 660-258-5732 or 660-895-5123. Lunch Will be included.
The program is sponsored by the Missouri Department of Conservation, Pheasants Forever/Quail Forever, University of Missouri Forage Systems Research Center and University of Missouri Extension.
