Many farmers would grow more forages and legumes if they had a good market for them. Grasses and legumes help build soil fertility, they help control erosion. Nearly every Iowa frmer will agree to that. Yet our actual progress in the use of more forages has been disappointingly slow - probably for lack of a good forage market.
