BOONE, IOWA, 06-16-2014 - Hay and forage producers can learn more about hay and forage production at the 28th annual Hay & Forage Expo set for June 25 and 26 near Boone, Iowa. It's the industry's only two-day hay and forage event in the nation.
Live field demonstrations of hay making, hay handling and forage harvesting are the key draw for visitors. The two-day extravaganza showcases mowing, conditioning, baling and hay handling demonstrations on alfalfa. Visitors can compare the various equipment brands side by side under actual field conditions.
This year's event will be held at Central Iowa Expo, the same location where the Farm Progress Show will be held in August. Alfalfa fields designated for parking during the Farm Progress Show will be used for the haying and forage harvesting demonstrations. That means around 150 acres of alfalfa is available for the demos.
