Georgia Forages Conference - 2016

Forage production is the heart of Georgia’s livestock industry. Our diverse forage systems are some of the best in the world. For the fifth straight year, the Georgia Cattlemen's Annual Convention began with a focus on forages with the Georgia Forages' Conference starting off the week’s events. This Conference took place March 30, 2015 at the Georgia National Fairgrounds (directions) in Perry, GA. This event allowed us to team up with the Georgia Cattlemen's Association to offer a new learning opportunity in combination with the GCA's annual cattlemen's convention.
