Stand Count - Assess the alfalfa stand and stem  density to ensure it is adequate to maximize yields.
Insect and Disease Diagnosis - Identify insects and diseases present and determine treatment.
Tissue Analysis - In-season tissue sampling analysis identifies which nutrients need to be addressed.

Contact Forage Specialist Roy Zellmer, 608-393-4120 |, to schedule your checkup.

It can happen anywhere at any time—in an instant, life can change forever and that moment will define who you are. In an Instant does more than just re-tell heart pounding first-person accounts of the world’s most harrowing tales of survival, it brings them to life with breathtaking dramatizations of the moment before and after life was forever changed. One of the first season's episodes hits close to home for most farmers. While cleaning a large bin on his family's Iowa farm, Arick Baker is buried under several feet of corn.

The powerful new series features the trials and triumphs from every angle and includes gripping first person interviews with the people who lived to tell their stories—and those who were instrumental in helping them survive. Ordinary people who have watched their lives flash before their eyes, stared certain death in the face and overcame it. What key decisions did they make to save their lives? In an Instant, when it is between life and death—and life wins. Click here to watch (1 hour  and 22 minutes)
