The Missouri Forage and Grassland Council / Grazing Lands Conversation Initiative is an organization consisting of farmers, ranchers, educator, scientists, conservationists, industries and government agencies with a common interest in forages. MFGC/GLCI promotes the efficient use of forages through a variety of research, education and service programs.

Forages are vitally important to Missouri. More than half of the land area in the state is in forages. Forages make up two-thirds or more of the feed for livestock. Missouri forages provide food and shelter for wildlife, greatly reduce soil erosion and assist in protecting water quality.
