Working field demonstrations of new forage harvesting equipment will highlight the 2014 Hay & Forage Expo, scheduled for June 25-26 at the Central Iowa Expo facility near Boone.

“Demonstrations begin in the morning with mowing, conditioning and chopping, then continue in the afternoon with raking, baling and hay handling,” says Matt Jungmann, Farm Progress national events manager. “Watching the machines operate side by side under actual field conditions is an excellent opportunity for producers.”

Previously called the Farm Progress Hay Expo, the event will also include a 10-acre exhibit field with displays from major and short-line equipment manufacturers, seed and building companies, and related product suppliers.

“The Hay & Forage Expo offers the perfect combination of field demonstrations and ag product displays,” says Jungmann. “The exhibit field is the place to discuss seed, hay marketing, crop production, conservation and more.”

The expo is sponsored by Hay & Forage Grower, Wallaces Farmer, The Farmer and Wisconsin Agriculturist. Watch for more on the event at
