Mike Brouk, Kansas State University professor and state dairy Extension specialist, studies the effect of pre-cutting round hay bales during baling on forage quality and processing time.

He recently finished a field trial looking at this subject. He shared pertinent findings during the recent Alfalfa U event sponsored by John Deere, Alforex and High Plains Journal.

There are baler models available that slice the forage as it's wrapped into bales, and Brouk wanted to see if tub grinding could be eliminated from the feeding process, as well as the forage losses that are associated with it.

For five years, the team at High Plains Journal has brought its series of Alfalfa U seminars to locations from Kansas, to Nebraska, to Idaho and more. This year, however, due to pandemic precautions, the Alfalfa U series is planning to come to a computer screen near you. After all, the unique challenges of growing and marketing alfalfa in the West don’t stop because of COVID-19.

High Plains Journal, along with Alforex Seeds and John Deere, have chosen to offer Alfalfa U virtually across four separate dates: Feb. 16, Feb. 18, March 4 and March 11.

And this year, because all of the education will be available online, alfalfa growers finally have a chance to learn from speakers outside of their immediate region that they otherwise might have missed in-person.
