The Missouri Dairy Grazing Conference will feature presentations by university faculty, industry and dairy producers on the latest information related to dairy grazing systems. Farm tours will be held to local pasture-based dairy operations both during and after the conference. A trade show is planned for 30-40 businesses affiliated with this industry to showcase their products and information during the conference. Approximately 275 people attended the conference in 2011 from a total of 24 states across the U.S. and three countries.
Over the years some confusion surrounding the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Dairy Products Prices (DPP) program and the use of these data in the class price formulas. Why are NASS’s DPP reports used in the Agricultural Marketing Service’s (AMS) class price formulas? How are the NASS reports compiled? Is there a magic formula used to generate the NASS DPP reports? What prevents manufacturing plants from misreporting or manipulating the prices?
Flies do have an economic impact for dairy producers. House flies and Stable flies are primary pests of confined animals followed by the horn fly for producers who pasture their animals. Horn flies are serious pests but the larvae cannot tolerate the manure being disturbed hence in confined operations they are not as serious a pest.

Welcome to the Missouri Dairy Association
We hope you use this site to gain information on upcoming events and news related to the dairy industry in Missouri and surrounding areas.
Corn basis levels were strong for the week as river terminals needed spot supplies while they continued to catch up on shipments to the Gulf after barges were stalled due to high water and treacherous conditions on various sections of the rivers prior to last week. Conditions on the rivers improved last week as the Upper Mississippi, Illinois and Lower Ohio Rivers saw falling water levels after reaching a crest late in the week. On the upper Illinois River, Marseilles Lock reopened on May 15 with the Coast Guard imposing restrictions for barge traffic as repairs continue on the gates. The Mississippi River was expected to crest in St. Louis Wednesday with the lower Mississippi expecting to crest by the weekend. USDA reported total corn inspections through the week ending May 16 were up 17% from the prior week, but nearly 50% below the total last year at this time.
