2009 Western Alfalfa & Forage Conference
“Improving Your Odds of Profitability”
December 2 – 4, 2009 • Grand Sierra Resort and Casino • Reno, NV

This is an important year for alfalfa. Hay prices are down, dairies are struggling, and growers are very interested in new products and ideas for saving money. It’s a great time to be a part of this important conference!
The conference program covers many issues related to alfalfa and other harvested forages (markets, pest management, soils and irrigation, alfalfa as an energy crop, and how management decisions affect profitability).
