Economics of Annual and Perennial Forages Webinar Feb. 13

Economics of Annual and Perennial Forages Webinar Feb. 13

"I can’t find enough pasture.  Are annual forages economical (can they pay cash rent?)."

"Growing corn verses growing annual forages: which will net more income?"

"Is converting a pivot to perennial grass economical when I'm in need of pasture?"

With current corn prices and the limited availability of perennial grass, some producers are asking themselves if growing forages on cropland might be the answer to feeding the cow herd.  The questions listed above are just a sample of what the authors and Extension Educators are currently receiving from producers and ag lenders.  A webinar to address these questions in addition to showing economic examples will be held Tuesday evening, February 13, from 6:00-7:30 p.m. CST.  We would welcome your input into these economic examples.  Please join in to provide your input and get your questions answered!

Presenters: Jay Parsons, Biosystems Agriculture Economist, Daren Redfearn, Forage and Crop Residue Specialist and Mary Drewnoski, Beef Systems Specialist
