Greer, Jerry W.; Iverson, Maynard J.
The unit of instruction is designed for use by teachers in planning and conducting young farmer and adult farmer classes. The purpose of this course is to develop the effective ability of farmers to efficiently handle forages for economic livestock feed on Kentucky farms. The unit is divided into five lessons. The lessons deal with the following topics: (1) the extent of mechanization of forage handling desirable in order to produce the most economical feed, (2) harvesting forages by grazing, (3) harvesting and storage forages in barn type structures, (4) harvesting, storing, and feeding silage, and (5) harvesting, storing, and feeding forages in the field. Transparency and handout masters are found at the end of each lesson in the unit. Teaching forms and a unit evaluation questionnaire are appended. (VA)
