“This will be a day full of information on a wide array of forage and hay-related topics,” said Lisa Brown, AgriLife Extension agent in Menard County. “We have some top speakers scheduled, a lunch catered by Central Texas Farm Credit of Brady and an equipment display by Quality Implement Company of Brady, so this will be an outstanding program for those involved in hay and forage production in our area.”
