The Mid-America Alfalfa Expo, hosted by the Nebraska Alfalfa Marketing Association (NAMA), will be held Feb. 6-7 at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds, Kearney. More than 100 companies will showcase the latest in forage handling and production equipment both days of the event.

On Feb. 6, alfalfa yield vs. quality will be discussed by Neal Martin, director of the U.S. Dairy Forage Research Center. That afternoon, equipment manufacturers will hold a panel discussion on new technology and equipment for 2007. At 3:30 p.m., an exhibitor-consigned auction of forage-related products will be held.

On Feb. 7, Gene Ross of Nelson Irrigation will offer tips on managing irrigation efficiency and productivity, and Martin will discuss new uses for alfalfa, including biofuels. The expo ends with a producer panel and open forum featuring NAMA members.
