The Indiana Forage Council was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in 1966. The organization promotes forage production, management, utilization and marketing of forages. The IFC also promotes research into various forage applications in production agriculture, communicating current forage research and results to forage growers, and new or expanded markets for forages.

The Council is dedicated to research and education for profitable forage production and utilization. 

The IFC is an affiliate member of the American Forage and Grassland Council. Members of IFC automatically become members of AFGC, as well.

The AFGC consists of 22 affiliate councils in the United States and Canada with total membership of about 2,500. Its primary objective is to promote the profitable production and sustainable utilization of quality forage and grasslands. The AFGC aspires to be the "leader and voice of economically and environmentally sound forage-focused agriculture" and assists in establishing state opportunities for forage workers. The AFGC also releases forage-based publications.
