Finish strong with smart Strategies

Mother Nature has been taking us for a ride this year. Many farmers experienced winter-killed alfalfa followed by heavy spring rains and late-planted corn. More wet weather in May and June further stretched forage inventories. Corn harvest for silage has been pushed into September for most producers, and an early frost is an unwelcome thought.



Fortunately, opportunities remain to finish crop-year 2019 strong. Dr. John Goeser will provide practical management tips to rebound from a slow start and navigate a potentially challenging corn-silage season – with future markets and dairy economics in mind.

Owners, nutritionists and veterinarians –

the whole cow-management team – needs to be on the same page to formulate a plan to manage forage inventories. Tune in for strategies to deal with stress – crop and personal – as well as topics regarding haylage and alternative-forage quality and outside-the-box nutrition ideas.
