    The Cedar County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), University of Missouri Extension and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are working together to put on a regional grazing school in the Stockton area in early October. Presenter for the school will include local MU Extension regional agriculture specialists and NRCS employees. Education topics covered will include various aspects of a grazing system, including development, management and economics of grazing as well as various aspects of livestock management within a grazing system. Information learned from the school should help livestock producers cut cost in their operation through better livestock, grazing and pasture management. In addition to the information gained from the school, people who attend all the sessions of the school will be able to participate in soil and water conservation districts planned grazing system cost-share program. Furthermore, by attending the school it gives a better chance to participate in the NRCS EQIP program, which provides incentives for implemented soil and water conservation practices.
