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.
