If you get up early enough and are an optimist, there is a hint of fall in the air, which means if cool-season forages are not on your mind, it’s time to make a plan. Recently Kalyn Waters, UF/IFAS Holmes County Director and Dr. Ann Blount, UF/IFAS Extension Forage Specialist sat down for a discussion to kickoff cool-season forage season. Topics covered included: variety selection, planting dates, disease issues and carry over from summer forages, and overall management. The recording can be viewed on the Panhandle Agricultural Connections Facebook Page or by using the following link:
