The Buena Vista County Extension Office will be hosting a webinar this Wednesday July 25th from 1 to 3pm. The webinar is for crop and livestock producers dealing with drought-related issues, and options that are available to them.
Livestock issues covered during the webinar will include options to help producers manage immediate needs related to stressed pastures and reduced hay supplies. Members of the extension crops team will cover the topics of crop growth and development under drought conditions and feeding drought damaged crops. Extension specialists will discuss crop insurance coverage, grain marketing implications, and valuing drought-damaged corn silage. Possible disaster programs related to the drought situation will also be covered.
Buena Vista County extension is one of at least 25 locations hosting the webinar. Wednesday’s webinar at the BV County Extension Office is free of charge.
