Grow more forage
DUC’s forage program offers a solution to the lack of quality feed in some areas due to dry conditions and other agronomic challenges.
The 2023 Forage Program pays $60/acre toward the cost of field scale conversion of cultivated land to hay or pasture. You may also be eligible for other program incentives.
Want to experiment with forages in annual crop margins?
If you have small areas on your farm that aren’t as productive as you’d like due to excessive moisture or salinity issues, DUC’s Marginal Areas Program pays to seed those acres to forage.
