Video highlights from American Forage & Grassland Council tour

Published on 13 June 2013

The Virginia countryside, dotted with family-owned farms, commands the largest industry in the state – agriculture. What better place to host the American Forage and Grassland Council 2013 national tour? It’s grassland paradise.

Farm tours at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains included Eldon Farm in Rappahannock County, Kenwood Farm, LLC and Virginia Tech Northern Piedmont Center in Orange County, as well as Cedar Springs Dairy, Duck Farm and a hayride to Riverbend Farm in Madison County. 

Presented by Virginia Cooperative Extension and Virginia Forage & Grassland Council, the three-day event combined educational presentations, discussions and demonstrations highlighting forage research, techniques and management tools.
