It has been a 12 months since I wrote an article for this paper. I used to be blessed with a kidney transplant after which handled an an infection and COVID within the final 12 months however am lastly again to work full-time. On this article, I’m going to debate some programming and modifications in how MU Extension is working.
In the course of the time COVID had workplaces closed, college have been working from dwelling, I’ve been on many Zoom conferences and up to date a information sheet (453, Farmer’s Legal responsibility for his or her Animals). It’s best to learn this information should you personal livestock. You’ll be able to go to www.extension.missouri.edu and sort within the topic and it’ll come up. I plan to work on one other up to date information this summer time.
One other change in the way in which we’re doing enterprise is providing extra courses and applications by way of Zoom, a web-based assembly platform. As I write this, none of us on the Extension is definite after we will get again to unrestricted, in-person programming so Zoom is an excellent possibility. You’ll be able to obtain a free model to your laptop at dwelling and may attend that approach should you select. There have been applications this summer time associated to horticulture and ladies in ag along with many others.
Agricultural enterprise does loads of programming in late fall and winter resulting from farmers being obtainable then. At this level, we hope to do it in particular person however it might change to Zoom if the virus will get worse. Scheduled applications right now are: Farm Revenue Tax College (discusses tax modifications, and so forth.) on November 9 or 19, (identical program every night time) from 6 to eight:30 pm; Missouri Farm Leases – November 10 or January 14 (identical program each nights) from 6 to 9 p.m.; Property and Succession Planning (3-night class), January 12, 19, 26 and February 2 (one climate date in case); and Missouri’s Advanced Fence Legislation on February 23 and repeated on March 8. As I said, all these might change to in particular person or to Zoom relying.
We on the College of Missouri Extension, myself included, may also help you with these applications and farm/enterprise counseling additionally.
