  • Conference focuses on getting more from alfalfa

    By Katie Pratt

     For Clayton Geralds, the Kentucky Alfalfa Conference positively impacted his operation and future.
    Geralds was a Hart County dairy farmer using alfalfa to feed his animals when he attended the 3rd annual Kentucky Alfalfa Conference in 1983. Within seven years, he sold his entire herd to grow alfalfa and other quality forages to sell to horse farmers. He now grows alfalfa and timothy hay on more than 600 acres and is considered by many as one of the best hay producers in the state.

The final date to certify wheat, oats, and barley is May 31. Failure to report acreage by this date could result in a late filed measurement service and fee to the producer.
