NDSU Extension Hosting Baleage Videoconference

Baleage is a fermented hay product that can be made when haying in wet weather.

The North Dakota State University Extension Service is hosting a videoconference on baleage and preservatives March 3.

The Tools for a Rainy Day Haymaking: Baleage and Preservatives videoconference will run from 1 to 3 p.m. and be held in three locations. The locations and people to contact when registering are:

  • NDSU Central Grasslands Research Extension Center near Streeter - Fara Brummer, (701) 424-3606,
  • NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center - Karl Hoppe, (701) 652-2951,
  • NDSU North Central Research Extension Center near Minot - John Dhuyvetter, (701) 857-7682,

During this videoconference, Dan Undersander, University of Wisconsin Extension forage specialist, will discuss using baleage for creating a high-quality fermented hay product for the beef industry. Baleage is a method that can be used during wet-weather haying, when hay quality often is compromised.

Undersander also will talk about using preservatives, including types, application rates and methods, and cost effectiveness.

“This videoconference is designed to be interactive,” says Brummer, area Extension livestock systems specialist at the Central Grasslands center and videoconference organizer. “Topic areas will be followed by ample time for discussions. Please come with questions.”

The event is free of charge. To register, contact the Research Extension Center where you plan to attend the videoconference.
