Missouri Department of Conservation can help cattle producers with summer forage
Kansas City, MO (STL.News) – Late summer’s hot, dry weather can reduce cattle forage quality and availability. Adding native grasses and forbs to grazing and haying rotations can provide high quality forage in summer, and native plants also are a boost to wildlife. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) can help landowners add native warm-season grasses and forbs to their forage systems.
MDC’s Private Land Services Division staff offers expertise on how to establish and maintain native grasses in forage systems.
