*  G9491 Managing for White-tailed Deer in Missouri: Setting and Accomplishing Management Goals | University of Missouri Extension
Soil fertility influences the nutritional quality of the browse and forage within a particular area. For example, a highly preferred plant of white-tailed deer such as greenbrier can have 13 percent more crude protein in areas of high soil fertility than it has in areas of lower soil fertility (Figure 5).. Soil conditions are highly variable across Missouri. For example, much of northern Missouri has deep, nutrient-rich soils that support agriculture and crop production. In the Ozark region of Missouri, soils are generally not as fertile and much of the land is dominated by a mixture of forest and grassland habitat. Nutrient-rich soil does exist in southern Missouri, but it does not dominate the landscape as in northern Missouri. In southern Missouri, fertile soils are often held in river bottoms or other low areas. These differences in land use and soil quality can greatly affect deer antler and body size, ...

*  Missouri Lawmakers Propose Ban On Islamic Law
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Two Missouri lawmakers have proposed legislation aimed at preventing Missouri courts from applying laws from foreign countries and those based on Sharia, the Islamic religious law. Republican Rep. Don Wells, of Cabool, says his measure isnecessary because the Islamic legal system is spreading and could threaten Missouri. Rep. Paul Curtman's bill takes a broader approach to banning the application of foreign laws in Missouri courts. Similar measures have been considered in a handful of other states. Critics call both measures bigoted and unnecessary. The Kansas City Star reports that Wells' measure specifically bars judicial consideration of Sharia law, or Islamic religious law.

*  Iron County, Missouri Genealogy Genealogy - FamilySearch Wiki
The unusual shape of Iron County, Missouri, according to Goodspeed's 1888 History of Southeast Missouri, resulted from the difficulty inherent in creating the county. Land was taken from six other counties in order to form Iron County, but it became a challenge to accomplish this without reducing the size of those counties below their constitutional limits. Iron County derives its name from its prevalence of iron ore. The county is located in a part of southeast Missouri that at one time was important as a mining center. The county court first met 4 Aug 1857 at Arcadia. That was when Iron County was subdivided into the townships of Dent, Kaolin, Iron, Pilot Knob, Arcadia, Liberty, and Union. The county is home to Pilot Knob, known as the site of Fort Davidson. This is where a significant Civil War battle, the Battle of Pilot Knob, took place in 1864.

JOHNSON Fig. 1.-Green Feed is Essential for a Normal, Thrifty Pig Crop. Reliable records on the number of pigs that die during the suckling stage are not easily obtained, but experienced swine growers have estimated that 40 per cent of all the pigs born in Missouri die before they are old enough to wean. Reports recently collected by the Missouri College of Agriculture agree closely with this estimate. A variety of conditions may account for these losses. Under even the most favorable circumstances some pigs are so weak at birth they have no chance of surviving. Others die because of exposure during unfavorable weather. Others are smothered or seriously injured, by careless or by excitable mothers. Lastly a considerable number begin to scour badly, and become ...
