Practical Applications of Forage Rejuvenation: Webinar February 24

Update: Missed the webinar? Find the recording and check for future webinars on our Webinars page.

Including legumes in a forage stand can increase production by 100% or more, however, the legume component is often lost over time. The reintroduction of legumes by sod-seeding can eliminate the risk of soil erosion and decrease machinery repair costs while increasing overall forage production.

Mike Schellenberg

Dr. Mike Schellenberg, Ph.D – Range and Forage Plant Ecologist at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Swift Current

Since 1996, Dr. Schellenberg has conducted and directed forage plant ecology research in the disciplines of range science, perennial plantbreeding, restoration ecology, seed ecology, agronomy, forage quality and animal nutrition. His activities reflect his diverse research interests and skills in forage/range livestock production and agro-ecosystems. His work has focused on improving knowledge of introduced and native plant communities through development of simplified plant communities thus providing economically, environmentally and nutritionally sustainable forage resources to the livestock industry. He has been and is the lead or principal investigator for a number of studies dealing with plant species mixtures (specifically polycultures), native plant ecology, plant-animal interface, trace element uptake by forage and food crops and seed ecology.

What is a webinar?

Webinars are just like attending a workshop or conference, but from the comfort of your own home or office. We bring the presentation right to you. They’re easy to join and participate in. A reliable, high-speed internet connection is required.

All you need to do is register beforehand, and about 5-10 minutes before the webinar is scheduled to begin, click the link you were provided when you registered. Then turn up your computer speakers or call the phone number provided. That’s it! Sit back and enjoy. As a participant, you can anonymously answer polls and surveys, and will have the opportunity to ask questions near the end of the webinar.

Don’t have high-speed internet? Consider calling a neighbor that does and watch the webinar together, or call your regional ag office to ask whether arranging a group viewing is possible.
