Share Tweet Email

All are invited to attend a rapid-fire forage update sponsored by the Kansas Forage and Grassland Council in conjunction with the Mid-America Farm Expo on March 21 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The update will feature a hay market review, tips for managing woody encroachment and Old-World Bluestem on rangeland, and a focus on non-traditional forage alternatives and annual legumes to use as part of your overall forage program. Our group of forage experts will also hang around to answer your rangeland and forage questions at the end.

Come for the forage update and stay to check out the Expo. There is no cost to attend, and no RSVP is required. The event will occur at Tony’s Pizza Event Center (upstairs), 800 The Midway, Salina, KS 67401.
