Fall forage workshop planned for next week

Significant alfalfa winterkill across the region has put many farms in a bind this summer when it comes to forage stocks.

To answer fall forage establishment questions, the Shawano County Forage Council is hosting a workshop July 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “Fall Forages — Selection, Planting and Harvest” will be held at the Green Valley Community Center, W1734 County Road E, Cecil, which is just west of Advance.

Topics will include forage options after wheat, best management strategies for fall alfalfa establishment, fertilizer considerations for fall forages, new seeding alfalfa and more. The workshop is free with the Shawano County Forage Council providing a light lunch.

To ensure an accurate head count for the meal, RSVP with the Shawano County UW-Extension office at 715-526-6136.
