“Producers attending our field night will not only learn the simple process of sampling hay for nutrient analysis, but they will learn how to use the results of these analyses to help meet the nutritional needs of their livestock,” said Wells, manager of the Jackson Agricultural Research Station. “Field night speakers will present some management practices to help producers control waste of hay and will also cover the basics of making a high-quality late-summer/early-fall forage seeding.”
Field night presentations, all by Ohio State specialists, include:
- Reducing hay waste: Effect of feeder design and storage considerations.
- Forage sampling and analysis.
- Use of annual forages as an intermediate to a fall forage seeding.
- Jackson Agricultural Research Station’s environmental update.
Part of OARDC, the Jackson Agricultural Research Station is located a 019 Standpipe Road, Jackson, Ohio.
