Regional forages program July 25

Many alfalfa and forage stands across the state took a beating this winter and the wet spring has added insult to injury, according to Mark Badertscher, OSU Extension-Hardin County.

Forage stands were damaged this past winter, and the wet spring has further deteriorated stands that appeared they might recover.  So what are the options to assuring a forage supply for the future? 

A Forages for the Future Program will be held Thursday, July 25, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the St. Henry High School Commons, 391 E. Columbus St. in St. Henry.
