This is the sixth and final webinar in a six-part series covering several strategies for grazing season extension and alternative forage production. The series is a collaboration among UMass Extension, UVM Extension, and UMaine Extension. Learning how to grow and graze with alternative forage methods is just one piece of the forage puzzle. How these forage production methods affect animal performance and product quality is arguably even more important. Dr. Kathy Soder, an animal scientist with USDA-ARS, will discuss how to integrate these forages into your ration plan during this free webinar. She will discuss what changes you can expect compared to feeding traditional hay or pasture, possible pitfalls, and ways to succeed.
