In an effort to continue helping livestock operators, a workshop is being planned for Aug. 8 in Fulton by University of Missouri Extension officials.

According to livestock specialist Anita Ellis, this workshop will offer advice on stockpiling and winter feed options. With the record-breaking hot spring and early summer, forage has stopped growing and now is a good time to start thinking about options.

Speaking at this workshop will be:

Rusty Lee, regional agronomy specialist: "Different Forage Options and Implementing Your Stockpile Plan."

Dr. Eric Bailey, state beef extension specialist: "Winter Feed Options and Nutritional Considerations."

Anita Ellis, regional livestock specialist: "Fitting Your Livestock to Your Environment."

The workshop will start at 6 p.m. at the Callaway County Extension Office's meeting room, 5803 County Road 302, Fulton. These are the double doors on the west side of the building.

Registration is $5 per person and includes drinks, cookies and materials. RSVP at 573-642-0755 or email Callawayco@missouri.edu by July 27.
