Focus on Forages and the Future – 2017 Innovation Day Overview

Michigan State University (MSU) will host its second annual Agriculture Innovation Day: Focus on Forages and the Future on Aug. 24, 2017, at the Lake City Research and Extension Center located at 5401 West Jennings Rd, Lake City, Michigan, 49651.

The educational field day will deliver a cutting-edge, in-depth look at forages, livestock and the future to help farmers meet growing producer demands.

“Forage production plays a crucial role for livestock farmers across the state,” said Ron Bates, director of agriculture and agribusiness for MSU Extension. “This field day puts farmers in front of the leading experts, the latest research and the practical demonstrations they need to improve their bottom line with new strategies that also improve or protect the environment and allow producers to market to new consumer demands.”

In addition, attendees will hear from MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon over dinner.

Throughout the afternoon and evening, farmers will have the opportunity to participate in nine sessions- for more information visit the website below.
