Description

Winter annual crops like rye, wheat, or triticale can make an excellent cattle silage. Double cropping them after corn silage harvest is a practice many Pennsylvania farmers use to reduce nutrient loss and increase forage production on their land. Join farmer, John Lapp and Penn State Extension for a half-day field day. The day will include indoor conversations about the production and economics of double cropping grains as well as a visit to the farmer's nearby field.

  • Registration starts one hour before the Field Day begins.
  • Lunch is provided and the event is free.
