SEDALIA, Mo. University of Missouri Extension offices will see changes to their programs as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Face-to-face meetings and programs have been canceled until May 15. Some events will continue with a different format.
On Thursday, April 9, a Sheep and Goat Workshop scheduled to be in Stockton will instead be held as a webinar from 6-9 p.m. Patrick Davis, Jennifer Lutes and Gene Schmitz will be presenting the program covering nutrition, economics and parasite management. In addition to viewing the presentations, participants will be able to ask questions directly or type questions into a "chat room" for presenters to answer.
The Cedar County Extension Center will be handling registrations for this event, and registration is due by April 7. Call the Cedar County Extension Center at 417-276-3313 for additional details. Upon registration, participants will be given a link to access the program.
Travis Harper, an agronomy field specialist in Clinton, will be presenting programs on pasture renovation and management, spring lawn management and an introduction to honey bees and beekeeping for the next several Wednesday evenings in a webinar format. Email Travis at [email protected] or call the Henry County Extension Center at 660-885-5556 for more information on accessing these programs.
Another possible change may be the accessibility of local MU Extension offices. Please call in advance to see if your local office is open or if there are alternate ways to access the information you need or person you want to talk with.
