A lively discussion on Roundup Ready alfalfa, as well as a grower panel on alfalfa marketing, will highlight the 2008 National Alfalfa Symposium, Feb. 4-5, prior to the Feb. 5-6 Mid-America Alfalfa Expo in Kearney, NE.

Hay & Forage Grower and the Nebraska Alfalfa Marketing Association (N.A.M.A.) have joined forces to host the Symposium and Expo. For event information, click on the Symposium icon.

"This agreement builds on the success of our annual Midwest Hay Business Conference & Expo, allowing us to expand the topics we cover, as well as bring our conference programming skills to a larger group of producers," says Bret Kealy, publisher of Hay & Forage Grower. "The Symposium will give growers a wealth of marketing, research and production information, while the Expo will provide the latest in technology and equipment. Both events help attendees improve the quality, marketability and profitability of alfalfa products."

"N.A.M.A. is excited to partner with Hay & Forage Grower and benefit from the expertise it offers in providing informative and vital conference topics and speakers," says Barb Kinnan, N.A.M.A. executive director. "The Symposium and Expo are excellent opportunities for producers across the country to gain education and management information from experts, as well as an opportunity to interact with exhibitors on the latest in forage production and handling equipment, seed, services and product technology."
