WOOSTER, Ohio — Registration is now open for the OSU Extension Forage Production School, which will be presented as a three-session webinar program in six locations around Ohio.
The school will focus on planting, harvesting, storing and feeding high quality forage feedstuffs. New and current research in the area of forage genetics, annual forage crops, cutting management, hay making, silage production, forage fertility and forage evaluation will be presented.
The school will cover new technologies being used in forage production and take a look at the economics involved in stored forage production. Although the emphasis will be on forages and forage production for dairy operations, beef and sheep producers as well as commercial hay producers can benefit from the school.
The forage production school will be held Jan. 30, Feb. 4 and Feb. 11, from 12:45 to 3:30 p.m. each day. Wayne County is a host site and the Wayne County meeting location is the commissioner’s meeting room, on the top floor of the County Administration Building, at 428 W. Liberty St., in Wooster.
Due to a sponsorship from Hubner Seed, the cost of the school is only $40 per person, which includes a resource notebook and light refreshments. Pre-registration is required. Registrations are due to the Wayne County Extension office by Jan. 17.
