University of Missouri Extension, the Missouri Small Business Development Center for Agriculture, Food and Forestry, and NRCS+MU Grasslands Project are working together to provide an online three-night hay school to farmers on proper hay production and how to capture value on their investment. 

“The Southwest Missouri forage and livestock industry depends on proper hay production,” says Regional MU Extension Livestock Field Specialist Patrick Davis. “Our upcoming online course will provide Southwest Missouri farmers with hay production expertise fit for their operation.”  

The Online Regional Hay School will be provided to participants via ZOOM and begins at 6:00 p. m. on the evenings of March 30th, April 1st and 6th.  MU Extension Agriculture Specialists will educate the public on topics of:

  • How and when to produce quality hay
  • Hay production economics and COVID-19 considerations 
  • The agronomic impact on the soil
  • Cattle nutrition and hay feeding  

The program is provided at no cost to you, but in order to receive the ZOOM link and attend, you need to register online at by March 29th.
