Description

In order to market Kentucky produced alfalfa, we need to go back and look at our operation to see if we can produce high quality alfalfa. We can start doing this by determining what the best land use is given the particular soils and typography that makes up your farm layout. There are other things we need to be aware of after we determine our ability to grow alfalfa; is the terrain suitable for harvesting alfalfa using different types of harvesting equipment? Also do we have the equipment necessary to produce alfalfa, either as a grazing tool, grass hay or as silage? Then, if we do harvest it in such a way other than with livestock, do we have the storage facilities capable of keeping our product of the highest quality as we go through the sales season?
