National Forage Week


The American Forage and Grassland Council is excited to celebrate the 4th Annual National Forage Week June 17-23, 2018 as an effort to raise awareness to the importance and impact of forages. As the leader and voice of economically and environmentally sound forage focused agriculture, AFGC understands the impact of forages on the world and wants to share that knowledge by focusing our education efforts during National Forage Week.

PRESS RELEASE - Slightly less than 2 percent of the total U.S. population lives on a farm, making it more difficult for the general public to relate to farming and the accompanying benefits and challenges. As the general public moves further away from its agrarian heritage and the rural lifestyle, AFGC strives to bring farming and forages into greater public awareness with National Forage Week, now in its second year of celebration. ... full press release coming soon!
