When it comes to knowing the quality of your forage, cattle producers owe it to their bottom line to have the facts. That’s why the Iowa Beef Center (IBC) and Iowa State University (ISU) Extension beef specialists are encouraging producers to take advantage of a cost-share forage testing project.
If you’re not sure whether to participate, consider the ultimate cost if you don’t know what you’re feeding. The testing is simple and the cost is low. Through the IBC project, your share is just $6.19 thanks to sponsorship of the Grass Based Livestock Working Group of the Leopold Center, the Iowa Forage and Grassland Council, and Southern Iowa Forage and Livestock Committee.
