Forages

Introduction

The Georgia Forages website is your window to information on a wide variety of forage management issues. This information is extended to you by scientists from the University of Georgia, who continue to research all aspects of forage and livestock management. The recommendations found in this website are based on peer-reviewed research conducted in Georgia and throughout the world. We hope you will find this website provides accurate and up-to-date information about all forage management issues facing producers in Georgia and the Southeast. Please check this website regularly for updates, dates for upcoming events, and “Hot Topics.” For a quick glance at Georgia's Forage industries, check out the booklet entitled Georgia Forages: Quick facts about forages and grasslands in Georgia.
