Forage Testing Offered
Forage Testing For Beef Producers
The focus is on hay and silages samples impacted by floods, rain or delayed harvest.
The Iowa Beef Center will offer producers 50% cost-share ($6.20/sample) on a maximum of three forage samples analyzed and assistance in ration balancing. Producers can request sample bags, information forms and a hay probe from the County Extension Office. Producers will bring their cored samples to the Extension Office, along with their completed forms.
For more information, contact Winnebago County Extension 641-584-2261 or Russ Euken, ISU Extension Beef Program Specialist 641-923-2856.
