Spring is here: What’s the impact of winter kill?
This Wednesday, April 17, 2019
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. CT
How did the “queen of forages” survive the winter?
Spring is finally here and alfalfa will be ready to harvest before you know it. After a tough winter of flooding and a polar vortex, there are a lot of questions around the topic of winter kill. How did winter weather affect alfalfa fields? What are the options to make up for damaged stands? What are some strategies for adjusting dairy cattle rations if alternative forages are necessary to replace alfalfa? Tune into this webinar as Dr. David Combs, professor of Dairy Science at UW-Madison, discusses these questions and more.
