NEVADA, Mo. – University of Missouri Extension will offer an online workshop in January to help forage producers learn more about how to grow, harvest and feed alfalfa.
MU Extension agronomist Pat Miller says the two-night workshop gives producers basic knowledge to improve their bottom line by growing this high-quality forage.
“Alfalfa 101: Establishing a Stand, Starting Production, Harvesting, Feeding and Economics” will be held via Zoom 5:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 24, and Thursday, Jan. 26, 2023.
“Alfalfa is quite different from other forages and requires more management but rewards you with high-quality forage,” Miller says. “Year in and year out, alfalfa has been one of the crops with the highest return in MU Extension crop budgets.”
Miller, MU Extension ag business specialist Wesley Tucker and MU Extension livestock specialist Patrick Davis lead the workshop.
Attendees will receive the 68-page Alfalfa Management Guide and other handouts.
Register by Jan. 20 at mizzou.us/Alfalfa101.
