A multitude of equipment manufacturers, seed companies and other hay-product companies were available to answer grower queries at the 2014 Hay & Forage Expo, held in Boone, IA.
After a great first day of weather, day two was cut short when strong rains moved through central Iowa. But that didn't stop hay and forage producers from around the country - and even the globe - from scoping out the latest equipment and products.
Attendees also had a chance to listen to two Iowa State University (ISU) experts during the Lunch & Learn sessions. Elwynn Taylor, ISU Extension climatologist, talked about upcoming weather and its effect on hay production. Matt Darr, ISU ag engineer, spoke on how to manage and market corn stover as biomass for cellulosic biorefineries.
