MSU tour examines cool-season forage

Mississippi State UNiversity cool-season forage tour will take place on April 30.

Cool-season forages will get special attention at an April 30 tour at Mississippi State University’s forage unit.

The Cool-Season Forage Tour begins with registration at 5 p.m. and runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Henry H. Leveck Animal Research Farm, commonly called South Farm, in Starkville.

Topics and demonstrations included on the tour are small grains evaluation, annual and perennial clovers, alfalfa variety testing and management systems, tall fescue varieties and nutrient management.

The free event is offered through the Oktibbeha County office of the MSU Extension Service and will highlight work being done by the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station in collaboration with the Forage Research and Extension Program. Sponsors invite area forage and livestock producers to attend.

A meal is provided, so registration is requested. For more information or to register, contact Oktibbeha County Extension Service coordinator Julie White at (662) 325-5916 or juliew@ext.msstate.edu, or MSU Extension forage specialist Rocky Lemus at (662) 325-7718 or rlemus@ext.msstate.edu.
