The forage supply is tightening, so what is a cow/calf or yearling operation to do if grass is not available?
Look no further than a cornfield! On June 10th, several short presentations will cover a variety of speakers, from residue use, cornstalk grazing, confinement and limit feeding cows/pairs, market outlook, ammoniating or alkaline treatments of residues, annual forages/cover crops, agronomic considerations, and app and electronic decision support tools.
You can attend 3 ways: in person at North Platte (West Central Research and Extension Center) or near Mead (Agricultural Research and Development Center), or watch online from the comfort of your own computer. For those attending in person, a $10 fee will cover your lunch. Separate producer panels will be at ARDC and WCREC.
The program starts at 10 am CT and ends at 2:30 pm CT. For more information, contact Lindsay Chichester at 402.624.8007 or Aaron Stalker at 308.696.6707.
