"SHOW ME" BEEF TOUR REGISTRATION DEADLINE AUG. 31
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Time is running out to register for the Alabama Farmers Federation's 2010 "Show Me" Beef Tour to Missouri on Sept. 19-25, says Nate Jaeger, director of the Federation's Beef, Equine and Hay & Forage Divisions.
|Missouri boasts many great farms and ranches.|
The registration deadline is Tuesday, Aug. 31, and the tour is limited to the first 50 registrants.
"This year we are visiting the third-largest beef cow state in the nation," said Jaeger. "Missouri is home to some great farms and ranches, and we are going to visit several that are unlike any you have seen before -- farms like the Meir Dairy that utilizes a New Zealand-style intensive management rotational grazing system, a bull test station that measures its feed by the gram and a 5,000-head feed yard that has zero run-off."
Jaeger said the tour would also take in the scenic beauty of Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks as well as Branson's celebrated entertainment fare.
The tour will fly into Springfield, Mo., for a one-night stay before boarding a bus the next morning, Sept. 20, to begin the tours. The bus will take attendees to the airport on the morning of Sept. 25. Attendees are urged to make return flight arrangements between 10:30 a.m. and noon.
