What the experts say

"The goal [of Forage Day] is to inform farmers on how to produce and utilize forages...It also gives farmers the opportunity to interact with producers of like interest, agribusiness personnel and university personnel."

"Seeing the different pieces of equipment perform side by side is especially helpful. I've always felt that if someone has a need to purchase equipment, the demonstrations would help him or her make a more informed decision"

- Dr. Keith Johnson, Forage Day Coordinator
