Brett and Jessica Dixon have invited the University of Missouri Extension and area producers to visit their farm for a pasture walk at 11 a.m. on April 27.
The Dixons have been in business on their farm near Morgan, Mo., since the summer of 2011. Before then they farmed with Brett’s father Keith. The farm consists of 125 acres that is the home to 65 cows, about half of which are Ayrshires, with the remaining half being Guernseys, Holsteins, and crosses.
The couple has done some pasture renovation work on the farm, starting with annuals then moving to perennials. Most of the perennial establishments have been to ryegrass. There are currently several acres in annual ryegrass and cereal rye. These pastures are scheduled for permanent renovation in the near future. The Dixons would like to discuss options for perennial establishments on these fields. A portion of the farm is still in KY-31/ladino clover stands.
Directions to the Dixons: Take Hwy 5 north of Hartville about 20 miles to Hwy J which goes to the left (west). Turn left on Hwy J and go 5 miles to Morgan. The farm is just past Morgan on the left. Watch for the farm sign – Still Dreamin Dairy.
