Mid-America Alfalfa Expo, Conference program announced

Nebraska

The Mid-America Alfalfa Expo & Conference has announced its program for the 2013 event, which features a special presentation of the Alfalfa Intensive Training Seminar, an industry trade show and tremendous fundraising auction.

Sponsored by the Nebraska Alfalfa Marketing Association, the Mid-America Alfalfa Expo & Conference will be held at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds in Kearney, Neb., Feb. 5 and 6, 2013. The event is designed especially for alfalfa producers, livestock/dairy producers and others who are involved in alfalfa production, purchasing, hay feeding or processing.

The featured presenter for the 2013 event will be Dan Undersander, Ph.D., professor of agronomy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Over the course of the two days, Undersander will present a variety of sessions, which are part of the Alfalfa Intensive Training Seminar developed for the National Alfalfa and Forage Alliance. Key topics addressed will include managing drought effects, trace mineral impact, pest management, alfalfa in rotations, and contract harvesting.

Additional presentations will include information from soil water/irrigation and animal nutrition experts and a panel discussion featuring a mix of alfalfa producers and purchasers from across the nation.

"We are fortunate to have Dr. Undersander for this year's event. His sessions will be extremely valuable to alfalfa producers and purchasers as we head into an uncertain season in terms of weather and markets," said Barb Kinnan, executive director of N.A.M.A."

A large alfalfa industry trade show and fundraising auction are also included during the two-day event. A new event this year, the "Forage Olympics," will pit teams of alfalfa producers and other conference participants competing in timed events such as hay strapping, stacking square bales and rolling large round bales.

Registration includes admission to all presentations and programs, a Tuesday afternoon reception, dinner Tuesday evening, admission to the large alfalfa industry trade show and the opportunity to bid in the fundraising auction that takes place Tuesday afternoon. The auction features a wide range of items including seed, harvesting equipment, supplies and other valuable products and services.

Registration is $10 per person in advance (by noon, Feb. 1, 2013) and $20 at the door. For more information, call 800-743-1649 or visit www.AlfalfaExpo.com.
