University of Maryland Extension, University of Delaware Extension, and the Maryland-Delaware Forage Council invite forage producers, grazers, livestock owners, and associated industry personnel to attend the upcoming Maryland-Delaware Hay and Pasture Conference Series in January 2020.


This series of conferences will be held January 14-17, 2020, at four locations throughout Maryland and Delaware. Conference dates and locations are as follows:

· Delmarva: January 14 in Harrington, DE

· Southern Maryland: January 15 in Brandywine, MD

The featured speaker for this upcoming series is Dr. Matt Poore, Animal Science Department Extension Leader and Ruminant Nutrition Specialist at North Carolina State University. Dr. Poore will speak on ‘Making the Most of Adaptive Grazing in Building a Productive Pasture-Based Livestock System’ and also on ‘Building a Balanced and Resilient Forage System Using Perennials and Annuals’. Other topics vary slightly by location, but each event will cover a variety of relevant forage topics including weed control, soil health, pasture renovation and establishment, the use of annual forages, and making quality hay and haylage.
