When and where
I recently had two CAFA members ask me when and where this year’s symposium will be held. The symposium is sponsored by the UC Alfalfa Work Group: www.alfalfa.ucdavis.edu. This year’s meeting is titled the California Forage & Grains Symposium and will be held in Sacramento on Dec. 10-12.
If you missed last year’s conference you can get the papers presented by speakers by visiting the Alfalfa Work Group’s Website. Last year’s Western Alfalfa & Forage Conference was sponsored by the UC Alfalfa Group and Cooperative Extension Services from 11 Western states. It was held in Las Vegas and more than 700 people attended. There were 42 speakers and more than 100 attendees from foreign countries.
