Plans are under way for Hay & Forage Grower’s 2006 Hay Conference and Expo, tentatively set for next March.

The 2005 conference and expo, held recently in Sioux Falls, SD, drew nearly 300 hay growers and more than 50 exhibitors. The program covered numerous topics of interest to commercial hay growers, including hay market niches, selling to dairy producers and horse owners, and the 2005 growing-season weather forecast.

The dates and location of next year’s event will be announced later this spring.
