Early Season Alfalfa Scouting

I love alfalfa.  It’s a fun crop to manage and assess year after year.  I also love it for the ground my dad farms in the hills.  It’s great for the land, helps with erosion and compaction, and makes for some great cow feed. 

Come along with me as I do some early season stand assessment for my dad on his Wisconsin dairy farm!  Usually, I would like to do this even earlier in the alfalfa season so we would still have time to treat with a fungicide early on.  

I hope you enjoy this scouting video! Let me know if you want to see more of this type of content in the future!
