Columns: Forage Days is Feb. 11 in Lamberton

LAMBERTON -- Minnesota Forage Day will be Feb. 11 at the Southwest Research and Outreach Center, Lamberton. The program is co-sponsored by University of Minnesota Extension and the Midwest Forage Association (MFA). Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., with the program from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Dr. Dan Undersander, University of Wisconsin Extension Agronomist and Professor, is the featured speaker. He will share his extensive research and practical experience with several key aspects of profitable forage management. He will discuss his pioneering methods to consistently conserve highquality forage via equipment strategies to speed hay and haylage curing in the field. Undersander will also address research-based seeding date recommendations for perennial legume and grass forages, and methods to reduce ash continuation in stored forage.

The event will feature a presentation on forage economics and benchmarking by U of M Extension educator Ron Holcomb. A Midwest Forage Association representative will be on hand to provide an update on MFA's continued success on behalf of the forage industry.

Those pre-registered by Jan. 29 will receive a discount.
