FORAGE SEMINARS: Learn the latest about forage research, forage equipment and on-farm practices during the virtual 2021 Midwest Forage Association/Professional Nutrient Applicators Association of Wisconsin Symposium Feb. 16-17.
The annual event is hosted by the Midwest Forage Association and the Professional Nutrient Applicators Association of Wisconsin.

Dairy, beef and hay farmers, as well as custom operators and nutrient applicators, should mark their calendars for the 2021 annual symposium hosted by the Midwest Forage Association and the Professional Nutrient Applicators Association of Wisconsin on Feb. 16-17. Due to the pandemic, the symposium will be held online.

Staffs of MFA and PNAAW have put together nearly 30 live educational workshops, as well as a virtual trade show. Attendees can view educational sessions “live” and will be able to talk with speakers directly or chat with exhibitors in the exhibit hall. Symposium registrants will be able to view the recorded sessions on demand after the event for up to three months.

A lineup of university, industry, agency and farmer speakers will be discussing topics MFA and PNAAW members have identified as being the most timely and relevant to their operations.

Highlights include:

  • manure for nutrient needs of alfalfa
  • growing and feeding alfalfa-grass mixtures
  • what’s new in mergers
  • building connections between livestock and crop farmers
  • carrying your farm on a hitch pin
  • fungicides on alfalfa and silage corn
  • seeding success and alfalfa establishment
  • protecting your dairy from price risk

The keynote session will be given by the “unstuck guy,” Fred Whitford. In addition to having his famous “Pulling Out Stuck Equipment Safely” session on Feb. 16, he will be addressing symposium attendees live with “Lessons Learned From Truck Accidents.”

The symposium will also feature University of Wisconsin Extension Manure Applicator Training 101 the afternoon of Feb. 17, at a cost of $5 for registered participants.
