Entry forms for the 24th-annual World's Forage Analysis Superbowl contest are ready for commercial and dairy forage producers to download, fill out and send in. The Superbowl gives growers from across the U.S. and Canada the opportunity to showcase their high-quality forage production and win valuable prizes.
Commercial growers can submit entries in hay and baleage contest categories. In the dairy division, growers can enter in the hay, haylage, standard dairy corn silage and dairy corn silage (brown mid-rib) categories. The top prize in each category receives one year's free use of a forage harvesting or feeding piece of equipment.
Entry forms and contest rules are available at www.AgSource.com or www.hayandforage.com. Or, contact the AgSource Soil and Forage Laboratory at 715-758-2178. Entry deadline is Sept. 6.
Awards will be presented at a luncheon during World Dairy Expo in early October. Last year, more than 275 entries competed for top honors. Besides AgSource, contest organizing partners include Hay & Forage Grower, DairyBusiness Communications, U.S. Dairy Forage Research Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and World Dairy Expo.
