Ohio Forages and Grasslands Council Annual Conference, February 19

The Ohio Forages and Grasslands Council Annual Conference will be held February 19, 2016 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Ohio Department of Agriculture in Reynoldsburg, OH. The program theme is “Fitting the Pieces Together in a Forage System.”

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Stacey Hamilton, University of Missouri Extension State Dairy Specialist, who will discuss “Balancing risk and rewards of annual and perennial pastures” as well as “What we are learning about irrigating pastures,” based on his work with grass-based dairies in Missouri. Chris Penrose, OSU Extension Educator, will speak on what he has learned from his on-farm research with “N-Inhibitors for grass production.” A highlight of the program is always the Producer Panel, and that tradition will continue with several producers highlighting their forage, dairy, sheep, and beef production systems.
