Alfalfa production concerns, potential Wyoming hay markets and producers sharing their experiences growing forages are part of the Wyoming Forage Field Day June 27.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at the James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center near Lingle, said Anowar Islam, University of Wyoming Extension forage agroecologist.

“This year’s Wyoming Forage Field Day will be a wonderful event for producers, growers and participants to learn more about forage production and management including economics and irrigation practices, nutritional advantages of alfalfa, latest field equipment and products,” Islam said.

Most importantly, he said, those attending will hear experiences from other growers during the producer panel discussion.

The schedule includes:

• 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.—Economics of forage fertility results;

• 9:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.—Nutritional advantages of alfalfa; what customers need to know;

• 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.—Alfalfa production and management;

• 10:30 a.m. to 10:40 a.m.—New winter peas in Wyoming;

• 10:40 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.—Irrigation methods in alfalfa, water use, economics;

• 11:15 a.m.- noon—Producer panel discussion;

• Noon—Cream can lunch; and

• 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.—Machinery equipment demonstrations, forage trial tours and demonstrations, forage product reviews and door prize drawings.

Donn Randall, crop and forage program manager with the Wyoming Business Council, will discuss hay-marketing strategies and yield-versus-quality decisions to get the most income from forage.

Registration is free. RSVPs are requested by contacting Randall at 307-777-6578 or donn.randall@wyo.gov; Islam, 307-766-4151 or mislam@uwyo.edu; UW Extension educator Dallas Mount, 307-322-3667 or dmount@uwyo.edu; or Kelly Greenwald at SAREC, 307-837-2000 or kgreenwa@uwyo.edu.
