2021 Clay County Ag Seminar to highlight relief and assistance options, cattle market, pasture management, and risk management for producers
We will be having our 2021 Clay County Spring Ag Seminar on March 4 at the Wells Fargo building starting at 6pm. There will be no grazing hour this year, but we have a great set of programs lined up.
Mike McDonald from FSA and Kenny Prewitt from NRCS will be speaking on relief options and assistance programs following the winter storm last week. Colton Spencer, ag rep for Corteva, will be presenting on pasture, brush, and mesquite management. Pancho Abuello, our district Extension Ag Economist will be presenting the Cattle Market update and ways to minimize risk for producers, and Jason Johnson will be finishing us up with a presentation on PRF rainfall insurance options.
The registration fee has been covered by our generous sponsors, Kerr Feed and Grain, Central Custom Ag Aviation, and Scott Cleveland at Landmark Realtors.
