"It's been a problematic year for pastures in some regards," said Keith Johnson, Purdue Extension forage specialist. "Many producers may have overgrazed and some forages survived better than others, leaving some farmers to start feeding reserved hay. Those producers who take the time to improve their pastures will reap the benefits. This particular conference will help them deal with some of the problems they've faced this year and will emphasize ways to improve grazing systems."
