The Forages For “U” Workshop will be offered March 21 in Rushford at the Lynndyn Bridge Restaurant. It will feature Dr. Dan Undersander, Extension Forage Specialist, University of Wisconsin. At the workshop key forage production and management issues for Minnesota will be addressed.

This program is developed by the University of Minnesota Extension and is aimed at current issues and research in forage production and management with the intent to increase producers’ forage production and farm profitability. Topics and presenters include: 2013 Forage Production Outlook, Forage Fertility and Harvest Management and Alfalfa/Grass Production and Management (Dr. Dan Undersander, University of Wisconsin), Pasture Grazing and Management (Dr. Krishona Martinson, University of Minnesota Extension), and Insect/Disease Management in Forages (Lisa Behnken, University of Minnesota Extension).

Past participants expressed that they have benefited from the useful, research-based, and timely information the University of Minnesota Extension brings to these meetings and the open discussion format designed to encourage audience participation. This program targets crop management information for producers and Ag professionals.

Registration is $25 which includes lunch and handouts. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. with the program dismissing at 3:00 p.m. Pre-registration is preferred by March 14.
