Anyone serious about making and selling good-quality hay should consider attending the University of Georgia Forage Team’s 2010 Hay Production School, to be held April 8-9, at the Sunbelt Ag Expo site in Moultrie.

“This is a must for anyone who is serious about making and selling good-quality hay,” says Dennis Hancock, University of Georgia Extension forage specialist. “This training is rather unique in the Southeast. It is essentially the only opportunity for those who are serious about commercial hay production to get A-to-Z coverage of the subject.”

Starting at 8:30 a.m. on April 8, the school will include one and a half days of learning and interacting with fellow hay producers and university specialists. Registration costs are $75/person plus $35 for each additional person from the same farm. Beef producers in Georgia and members of the Perennial Peanut Producers Association get $50 off the fee if registration is completed by March 31. Hay-production and weed-identification books, other reference materials and lunch both days are included in the fee.
