Thursday, July 18, 2019: Grazing Steers on Native Grasses and Forbs

Missouri Prairie Foundation

Join tour guide Steve Clubine for a tour of his native prairie grass and forb cattle pasture and learn about the many advantages of native forage for livestock on this free tour. Prairie grasses and forbs native to Missouri are naturally adapted to our hot, dry summers, providing lush, palatable forage for livestock throughout the summer.

“Even in very dry conditions, my native pastures provide quality forage, and my cattle gain weight faster than on fescue,” said Clubine, retired grassland biologist and cattle producer, who, through his “Native Warm-Season Grass News” published regularly in the Missouri Prairie Foundation’s Missouri Prairie Journal, shares his expertise on native grazing systems.

Clubine is opening up his farm near Clinton, MO for this free tour, to help others see first-hand the benefits of establishing and maintaining a native forage grazing system. The tour will be offered Thursday, June 20  at 5:00 p.m.The one-hour walking tour is limited to a maximum of 25 people. To register, sign in at right, or call 888-843-6739.

Directions will be sent to registrants prior to the tour.
