This Practical Farmers of Iowa Cover Crop Field Day visits Terry Ward. Terry plants diverse crop rotations that include cereal rye, which he harvests to use in several ways. He’ll share his experience making ryelage, rye hay and rye straw. Hear from Terry’s dairy farming neighbors who feed this ryelage to their dairy cattle. The event starts in the field to view some cover crops before moving indoors for further discussion and a meal.
