Get 2021 Started on the Right Foot: Alfalfa Stands and Alternative Forages
This webinar will be presented by Jeff Jackson, Alfalfa & Forage Specialist, CROPLAN by WinField United, on Friday, April 16th, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. CST | 1:00 p.m. EST | 11:00 a.m. MST | 10:00 a.m. PST. This webinar is sponsored by Land O’ Lakes/CROPLAN.
Webinar Summary: Is my current alfalfa stand “GOOD ENOUGH” or do we need to make some quick rotational decisions? Lets discuss how to evaluate them, talk about the “Watch Outs” of getting a new stand established and take a peek at getting the most out of our stands that are going to make it this year. If I do need to rotate and need some “SUMMER FEED”, lets understand some forages I should consider to fill the bunker.
Speaker Bio: Jeff grew up on a very diversified family farm in NW Iowa and attended South Dakota State University where he obtained a Bachelors in Animal Science and a Masters in Plant Science. This led him to an agronomy position at a local coop where he was the guy that “wore many hats” handling grain, mixing and delivering feed, mixing and applying chemical and fertilizer…to name a few. In 2005, an opportunity was seized to become a District Sales Manager for CROPLAN helping local coop members run their seed businesses. Pivotal career changes in 2010 put Jeff in a forage role at Land O Lakes as a full-time Alfalfa & Forage Specialist with CROPLAN by WinField United focusing on the I-29 Corridor to help dairies and growers make the biggest pile of high quality #COWCHOW as they could. He spends his time helping the coop seller, commercial hay grower, the dairy and everyone in-between with product selections, agronomic advice and technical support as a CSI (crop scene investigator). Adding to his duties, he become the National Forage Sorghum product lead for CROPLAN in 2016 to help all understand the uses of Warm Season Summer Annuals in their rotations. In his spare time, he loves to hunt, ATV, and attend music festivals with his friends and family if he is not running his sawmill and doing woodworking.
