The training will be an active experience; so active, that participants will leave the training with grass stains, soil smudges, and hay/silage smells on their clothes! The training emphasizes practical information that will be used on the farm, or will be a valuable resource as agribusiness personnel and educators interact with forage-livestock producers. Certification credits/points are available. Leave the day with a better understanding as to how to calibrate a sprayer, set the gap on a mower-conditioner, sample hay for forage testing analysis, use a sweep net to evaluate presence of insects, calibrate a seeding drill, and determine forage moisture content before baling/chopping occurs. Other take-home information presented will be the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in forage management practices, making best decisions about weed control, and corn silage and forage-sorghum silage management comparisons.

Certification credits/points are available.

Preregistration is required. Cost to attend the day-long training is $110.
