A seminar aimed at helping producers narrow down options when selecting the right forage species will be featured at the Indiana Forage Council (IFC) Annual Meeting and Seminar, Jan. 22 at the Quality Inn in Richmond.

It will include discussions of a variety of forage-crop production systems, harvesting choices, variety selection, matching forages to livestock needs, soil fertility and more.

“Our hope for the seminar is that we can look at a lot of forage choices and help producers narrow them down to a few that would be worthy of more research for their individual farms,” says Purdue University Extension forage specialist Keith Johnson, event moderator.

The council meeting will start at 4:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6 p.m. The seminar will begin at 7 p.m. Registration cost, payable at the door, is $10 for IFC members and $20 for non-members. Attendance at the annual meeting is not a requirement for participation the rest of the evening. Participants should register by Jan. 18.
