Workshop to give hay and silage production advice
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – A workshop at Purdue University Sept. 2 will offer farmers the opportunity to learn how to get the highest quality hay or silage from their forage production system.
The Purdue Forage Management Day workshop is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is at the Agronomy Center for Research and Education, 4540 U.S. 52 W. in West Lafayette.
"Our focus is on forage production, primarily in the Midwest, from the initial steps of selecting your seed to the proper methods of storing your crop, and many topics in-between," said Corey Gerber, director of the Diagnostic Training and Research Center. "Seed quality, planter calibration and, depending on the environment you’re in, forage crop selection, are just a few examples."
Experts from across the state will give presentations. Registration costs $80, and those interested should register at least two days in advance. The registration form is available at http://www.ag.purdue.edu/agry/dtc/Pages/september2.aspx
