For five years, the team at High Plains Journal has brought its series of Alfalfa U seminars to locations from Kansas, to Nebraska, to Idaho and more. This year, however, due to pandemic precautions, the Alfalfa U series is planning to come to a computer screen near you.

High Plains Journal, along with Alforex Seeds and John Deere, have chosen to offer Alfalfa U virtually across four separate dates. And this year, because all of the education will be available online, alfalfa growers finally have a chance to learn from speakers outside of their immediate region that they otherwise might have missed in-person.

Each day’s session will have general topics pertaining to three different alfalfa production regions, but there’s plenty to learn from outside your area. They include:

Feb. 16, Colorado region, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Mountain time

Feb. 18, Kansas region, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Central time

March 4, Washington region, 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Pacific time

For the first time ever, this year we’ll also be offering a separate session just for our Farmer Panel, March 11, from 10 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. Central time, with farmers representing all three regions sharing their knowledge and expertise in raising quality alfalfa for their particular markets.

Head over to to check out the line up of speakers and more!
