Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/17/2020
For the second consecutive year, the Forage Bowl Team from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls took first place in the National Forage Bowl competition. The event was held last week in conjunction with the annual conference of the American Forage and
Grassland Council in South Carolina.
The competition is an undergraduate team event with a format similar to the game show Jeopardy. Categories cover all aspects of forage production and management.
Two UWRF teams participated this year. The winning team included Kyle Hilger of Bloomer; Anthony Neitzke of Egg Harbor; Leanna Schneider of Foley, Minn.; and Mark Kortbein of Tomah. Members of the second team were Molly McIlquham of
Chippewa Falls; Sara Behling of Cumberland; Sarah Anderson of Antigo; Kolby Beehler of Foley, Minn.; and Kira Jacobson of Cannon Falls, Minn.
The groups were coached by Yoana Newman, associate professor of crop science and Wisconsin Extension Forage Specialist.
