Virtual Field Day: Choosing the Best Forage Variety

There are some upcoming forage related programs coming up that I wanted to make you aware of, sorry for the short notice on the first one. They can all be found, and more at the UK Forge event web page: The events are scheduled, If you are interested in forage or are thinking about renovating a pasture, the field day tomorrow would be a good one to attend.

Plan to attend the upcoming KFGC/UK Virtual Field Day from the comfort of your home. Although we are all looking forward to in-person field days in the near future (hopefully), for now KFGC and UK specialists are working hard to find alternatives to deliver important information. The virtual field day will include a video tour of the UK Forage Variety Test plots managed by Gene Olson. We will show the performance of varieties of tall fescue, orchardgrass, red and white clover, alfalfa and many other forage species. The field day will include presentations by UK specialists on how to choose the best varieties for you farm and your individual hay fields and pastures.
