Benefits Of Warm Season Grasses
Area producers can learn the value of establishing native warm-season grasses for livestock grazing by attending a virtual program on February 18th, from 11 am to Noon. The Missouri Department of Conservation, NRCS, and MFA are partnering for this 45-minute virtual program which will feature insights from experts on how native warm-season grasses can serve as valuable forage for livestock, improve wildlife habitat, increase plant and animal diversity, reduce soil erosion, and increase water quality. The program is ideal for landowners and managers with at least 100 acres.
Registration is required for the online February 18th class, “Benefits of Native Warm Season Grasses,” and seats are limited. Register at mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/175705. Registered guests will receive a link to the virtual program 24 hours prior to the session.
