JUNEAU, Wis. — Every year the Forage Councils for Dodge and Fond du Lac Counties rotate hosting their annual Summer Twilight Meeting. This year, Dodge County will be hosting the Twilight meeting on Wednesday, June 14, 2023, at Condon Dairy Farm, Horicon, Wis.
Condon Dairy Farm currently milks Holstein cows in a double 16 rapid exit parlor built in 2015. The dairy grows its own corn, corn silage and haylage used for the animals. Their philosophy boils down to a simple equation: healthy soil = healthy plants = healthy animals & environment. The family also operates Prospect Ag Services, LLC, which is a full line Precision Planting dealer, Golden Harvest dealer and they also specialize in ag repair.
Keynote speaker at this year’s Twilight meeting is Bill Powel-Smith, Founder and CEO of LandCares, and a GPS Dairy consultant. Powel-Smith will be speaking on the in’s & outs of growing, harvesting, and feeding alternative forages, and where do alternative forages fit into a crop plan and dairy diet.
Food and beverages will follow the program. Early sponsorship of the Twilight meeting is Knowles Produce, Schraufnagel Implement and Lallemand Nutrition.
This program is open to all interested producers and Forage Council Members. Sponsored jointly with the Midwest Forage Association and the University of Wisconsin-Extension, the Twilight Meeting is one of many educational opportunities offered by the Forage Councils.
