Producing high-quality hay. That’ll be the emphasis of the March 11-12 Southeast Hay Convention at the Oconee County Civic Center, Watkinsville, GA.

The event will include two days of learning and interacting with fellow hay producers and university specialists, 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 an A-to-Z coverage of the subject.”

At each previous event, more than 100 participants attended from seven states and as far away as Puerto Rico. Demand for this year’s convention is sure to be high, Hancock says.

Registration by March 1 will cost $150/person and $100/additional person from the same farm. The fee covers the cost of a 400+-page Southeast Hay Convention notebook, a weed identification book, many other reference materials and Lunches and refreshments. For more information, visit
