Join us for the 2018 Pennsylvania Forage Conferences! There will be two conferences taking place this year – one in Indiana and one in Grantville. Program topics will be of interest to hay and silage producers as well as grazers!

Our keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Dan Undersander, Forage Specialist at the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Undersander will be discussing the use of low-lignin alfalfa in beef and dairy rations, as well as minimizing drying rate through swath width and machinery adjustments. Other topics include:

  • Weeds in Forages (Dwight Lingenfelter, Penn State Extension)
  • Soil Fertility in Forages (Dr. Doug Beegle, retired Penn State Extension)
  • Does Hay Pay? (Andrew Frankenfield, Penn State Extension)
