December 1: Baleage, Fail-age, and Garbage - Kendall Guither, farmer

Quality is the name of the game when making baleage.  This presentation will summarize a number of things Mr. Guither has learned over 23 years to help one make and maintain quality baleage, from the moment the forage is cut until it is fed.  No matter where one lives, these ideas can be utilized.  Mr. Guither will discuss different factors that affect quality and why each is important.  These factors include plant maturity, dry down rate after cutting, raking, baling, when to wrap, styles of wrappers, and different bale wrap plastics.

December 2: Post-Plastic Forage Storage panel

Single-use plastic is an issue that concerns Canadians. Preserving silage and baleage creates a lot of plastic waste on farms. Our panelists bring diverse solutions to this problem. Learn about innovations to keep bale wrap and silo covers out of the landfill.

December 3: Hitting the Bullseye on Forage Quality - John Winchell, Alltech

Using cues from Mother Nature along with weather, analytics, and a touch of common sense to hit the target on forage quality.
