Welcome to the Illinois Forage and Grassland Council Website

Above:  Aerial photo of the 2015 Illinois Forage Expo.  The Lawfer's Willow Valley Dairy Farm in Kent, IL was the site of the 2015 Forage Expo.  There were many exhibitors and equipment dealers to answer questions about their equipment, products and services.  Wet conditions prevented equipment demonstrations, but the crowd enjoyed the tours of the milking facilities and the farm.



Congratulations to Kendall Guither of Walnut, Illinois and Ashley Osborne of Mulberry Grove, IL on their awards received at the AFGC Conference.  Kendall received 1st in the baleage category in the forage competition.  Ashley received 3rd in the Forage Spokesperson Competition.
