Purdue University’s Forage Bowl Team went to the semifinals in the 2019 Forage Bowl Competition. Played like the game “Jeopardy,” the Purdue team squared off against five other collegiate teams.  All four team members were students in Keith Johnson’s Forage Management class in the spring semester of 2018. The team sends their appreciation to The Indiana Forage Council for the sponsorship of the student’s Purdue attire for the event.

Many of the officers and directors of the Indiana Forage Council come together for half a day at the Indiana State Fair to help the Indiana Beef Cattle Association with their food tent. Sandwiches are prepared and drinks are poured for paying customers. The Indiana Forage Council is pleased to help the Indiana Beef Cattle Association with this contribution of time. We love beef because they eat forage!
