Stored forages, such as hay and baleage, are a critical component of agriculture in Georgia, carrying livestock producers through times when forage is scarce. This year, the UGA Forage Team is debuting a new event format for hay and baleage producers. The 2018 Hay and Baleage Short Course will be held February 22 at the Carroll County Extension Office (Carrollton, GA) and on March 8 and 9 at the Burke County Extension Office (Waynesboro, GA). 


This program will focus on techniques for producing high yields of high quality hay and baleage in the Southeast. This Short Course will be valuable for serious hay producers looking to enhance their production system and learn more about modern hay and baleage-making techniques and technology. UGA specialists and researchers will present information on the hay and baleage-making and storage techniques, as well as provide updates on current research. Registration for the short course is $90 for the first person from a family or farm and $75 for each additional person from the same family or farm. Registration includes a 300+ page Hay and Baleage notebook, a weed ID book, lunches and refreshments.


So, if you are a serious hay or baleage producer looking to improve your operation, we invite you to attend the inaugural Hay and Baleage Short Course event. For more information or to register for the event, visit or contact Cathy Felton at 706-310-3464.
