Tips for Integrating Annual Forages into Your Production System
With forage availability at a premium, many producers are looking at annual forages planted on cropland as a potentially valuable feed resource this year.
In a Thursday, June 29 webinar, Daren Redfearn, UNL Department Agronomy and Horticulture professor and forage/crop residue specialist, will join Jay Parsons, UNL agricultural economics professor and farm and ranch management specialist, to discuss tips for integrating annual forages into your cropping plans. Planting dates, seeding mix, expected forage production and timing of forage availability will be discussed for various scenarios.
The annual forage plan of insurance represents an opportunity for obtaining crop insurance to protect against the primary production risk of low precipitation. Several changes to the annual forage plan of insurance take effect for the current sign-up period that ends Saturday, July 15. Redfearn and Parsons will discuss these changes and tips for how to integrate annual forage insurance coverage into your program.
The webinar will be from noon to 1 p.m. CST on June 29. There is no charge to attend, but participants are asked to register online prior to the webcast.
This upcoming program is part of a farm and ranch management webinar series by the Center for Ag Profitability.
