The deadline to enter the World Ag Expo forage challenge is Dec. 10.
This competition challenges farmers and ranchers who grow forage or silage to enter the results of their labor to see who produces the highest-quality forages in the West.
The winners of the contest will be announced on Feb. 8, 2011, at the World Ag Expo in Tulare. Up to $18,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded, and the contest is sponsored by Lallemand Animal Nutrition, North America.
The categories are alfalfa hay, standard corn silage and brown mid-rib corn silage.
