This educational program assists forage producers in making decisions on managing pastures and hayground. Topics include using maps to determine physical soil properties, estimate current and potential production, and form management units. This information is then used to take soil samples for fertility testing and to make agronomic, economic input decisions. Part of this process includes the option of selecting to focus work on your best field first. This can help producers prioritize funding for inputs and time spent on multiple fields. At the completion of the program custom reports will be provided which will be useful in future classes and consultations on forage production.

  • Participants registering after February 24th will have to view a recording of Session I
  • All participants should attend live or watch the recorded Session 1 prior to joining the remainder of the sessions.
  • Course repeats spring and fall of most years. If you miss one set of sessions, you may join future sessions at no additional cost beyond initial registration.
  • No refunds.
