Mike Melso, NEW Farm Technologies, will have a portable analyzer for forages (AgriNIR) for samples while the traditional koster ovens will also be available for moisture analysis.

The Forage Council will be offering burgers and soda/water at each location over the noon hour time frame. There is a suggested donation of $3.00 per sample to cover drying costs and noon lunch.

Sampling Guidelines:

  • Collect 3-5 stalks from a representative area within the field (cut at chopper height)
  • Please include name, address, phone number, hybrid planted, relative maturity, and planting date
  • Once samples are cut do not delay bringing them to the site so that moisture is not lost
