Saturday Session III
Learn to extend forage production year-round. Get to know perennial dual-purpose crops for forage and grain, like Kernza, and discuss the benefits and challenges of both annual and perennial winter forage. Uncover best practices, including manure management, feeding, and grazing, for providing winter forage on your farm.
Valentin Picasso is with the agronomy department at University of Wisconsin–Madison. His research interests include forages and grazing systems for resilience to climate change, perennial dual-purpose crops (forage and grain), ecological intensification of livestock systems, and interdisciplinary research to link science, farmers, and policy.
