Forage Sampling

Testing your forage is very helpful in understanding its market value and nutrients when formulating rations for you animals. By not testing your foarge you are truly just guessing what what you're feeding.

Hay Testing

With a test, you are able to know exactly what is being fed to your herd. This will help you create a more productive feeding plan and pinpoint potential issues. If you are needing a forage sample, or are interested in more information about forage sampling contact Kalee Clemens, Agriculture and Natural Resources Agent, at (620) 635-0247 or krier@ksu.edu







Wheat Fun Facts! 

Did you know that one bushel of wheat makes 70 one-pound loaves of white bread and 90 one-pound loaves of whole-wheat bread! 🍞
In 2017 (most recent year for the Census of Agriculture) Clark County had 41,716 acres planted to wheat to be used for grain. 🌾
In that same year the average for Clark County was 43.9 bushels per acre!
That means in 2017 our very own Clark County would have produced 128,193,268 one-pound loaves of white bread OR 164,819,916 one-pound loaves of whole-wheat bread!
**In reality, Kansas wheat is used not only for producing flour and making wheat foods. Approximately half of wheat produced in Kansas is exported to other countries and other bushels are used for anything from livestock and aquaculture feed to plastics. This statistical extrapolation, however, attempts to translate the importance of Kansas wheat to our dinner plates based on total volume.**
