Forage Crops for Maximum Livestock Nutrition

This workshop is led by regional manager for Southeast AgriSeeds, Paige Smart. We will explore summer annual forage crops as a means of increasing productivity while enhancing the nutritional value of pastures. Gain a better understanding of how to combine forages throughout the year to reduce feeding time. We will discuss how increasing the number of grazing days while decreasing the time spent feeding supplements, improves the bottom line of an operation. Livestock nutritional needs are often better met with improved forage varieties than with hay or supplements. We will also compare the growth of many different summer annual forages.
