Missouri Forage and Grassland Council
Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative
The Missouri Forage and Grassland Council (MFGC) / Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative (GLCI) is an organization consisting of farmers, ranchers, educators, scientists, conservationists, industries and government agencies with a common interest in forages. MFGC/GLCI promotes the effcient use of forages through a variety of research, education and service programs.
Forages are vitally important to Missouri for a multitude of reasons. More than half of the land area in the state is in forages. Two-thirds or more of the feed for livestock is made up of forages. Missouri forages provide food and shelter for wildlife, greatly reduce soil erosion and protect water quality.
