The Holt County Ag Update will be held Tuesday, February 5, at the Nodaway County Administration Center in Maryville, Missouri. The meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. starting with Private Pesticide Applicator training. For the applicator training, a training manual is required for licensing and a fee is charged for such. If you have an old manual, bring so you will not be charged for a new manual.

At 10:00 a.m., the University of Missouri Agricultural Extension staff will present a series of morning meetings for area growers and livestock producers. Topics will include strategies to reduce input costs without reducing yield, managing beef heifers economically to be successful replacements, invasive pest update and managing fertilizer and chemical input costs.
