The Southeast MN Forage Council & the Midwest Forage Association will hold a Summer Field Day on Thursday, July 18 at 5pm at Haz-Broy Farms. Haz-Broy Farms is located at 27919 State Hwy 250, Lanesboro Minn. The plots are one mile north on Hwy 250.

This will be an opportunity to learn about the Small Plot Demonstration from Jim Paulson, University of Minnesota Extension. The on-farm evaluation has five cool season grasses and alfalfa-grass mixtures. I assisted with the first cut harvest a few weeks ago; and I believe Jim will have some interesting preliminary results to share.

Also, Chad Keifer, Benson Farm service, will talk about corn silage rations. This will be followed by a producer panel moderated by Jim Paulson talking about emergency feed options.

The event is free, and includes a free beef supper. For an adequate supper count, you are strongly encouraged to RSVP by July 11 to MFA be emailing mfa@midwestforage.org or calling 651-484-3888.

A number of sponsors are making this event possible: AgStar Financial Services, Albert Lea Seed, Byron Seeds, Hammell Equipment, Marzolf Implement, Minnesota Ag Group, Preston Equipment, SEMA Equipment, St. Joseph Equipment, All American Co-op, Farm Country Co-op, Greenway Co-op Services, Minnesota Dairy Initiatives, SE region and Vern’s MFG.
