However, with over 34,000 acres of hay in Kossuth county I believe it should receive more care and management from dairy farmers and others who do grow alfalfa. Choosing the correct variety of alfalfa seed is essential for top yields. Vernal alfalfa is still best for those who wish to leave their stands down for a long time. For a one or two-year stand the Flemish variety is adequate. It has high yield possibilities and is earlier maturing than Vernal. A third variety of alfalfa is modified Flemish which is midway between Vernal and Flemish. Once the proper seed is purchased the next step is producing good stands of the crop coupled with good fertilization and management practices. Area Cattle Feeders meeting at Spencer, Jan. 3-4.
